In this new era where robotics plays important role in performing dangerous
task previously performed by human such as disabling bomb, handling
hazardous material and even helping in search and rescue mission. Collapsed
buildings are the most unstable place to perform search and rescue mission by
human where the weight and size limits the rescuer movements. Sudden
movement will cause further damage to the victims who trapped in the rubble
and also to the rescuer. Robot with conventional locomotion seems to be not
suitable to navigate on uneven and unstable terrain. This project describes the
development of a search and rescue robot with non-conventional locomotion
which is used to help first responder (Fire Fighters, Police and Medical) in a
search and rescue mission on uneven and unstable terrain to determine the
location of the victims in confined places such as collapse buildings without
causing further damage to the victims and the rescuer. The robot that will be
developed is a non-conventional locomotion robot where it have three arms
that enable it to move by dragging itself forward, backward, left and right. It
should able to move on unstable and difficult terrain and also able to climb
stairs. Extra features such as camera, microphone, speakers and other features
could be added according the needs of the project. Robots will be a valuable
asset in the near future for search and rescue teams from around the world.
This project is based on robot that have been developed named TerminatorBot
by Associate Professor Richard M. Voyles from University of Denver.
