Wireless Robotic Search & Rescue Operation for Calamities
Rescuing human body effected from natural or man-made disasters are considered to be the most important task just after occurring an unavoidable natural calamity. The main objective of this project is to create an autonomous robot that would assist rescue teams in urban search and rescue operations. The robot is meant to reduce human effort during search and rescue operations. This Autonomous robot system implies the application of a mobile robot for USAR (Urban Search and Rescue) missions for calamities to detect the human existence using sensor based localization and motion planning. Sensing parameters taken into account are CO2 levels by the CO2 sensor, the distance by Ultrasonic sensor, heartbeat monitoring by EPIC sensor, infrared heat by PIR sensor and monitoring the exact location of the body detected by GPS tracking module. Successful testing is done through the correctness of localization and human detection
