In this project the design of a wireless controlled surveillance robot with an efficient combination of semi and fully automatic navigation system is proposed for rescue applications. It can help men at disaster sites and dangerous areas where sending human beings is very risky. The mobile robot in the shape of small car equipped with various sensor such as human body detector, fire detector, sound detector, camera etc. for detecting causalities and analyzing the environment. The navigation systems consist of Global Positioning System (GPS) and Infrared sensors. All the working of the robot is controlled and coordinated by an ARM7TDMI-S core based microcontroller, LPC2138. The controlling units consist of Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi) module in the robot and a Wireless-Fidelity (Wi-Fi) enabled laptop with application software. This system is optimized for rescue application in the sense of functionality, accuracy, efficiency and cost effectiveness. This system can be modified by changing the sensors according to the situation in which it indented to use.
