Abstract

Nowadays rescue robots are used in some rescue operations. Increasing the speed and accuracy of victim detection with sensors and equipment which are installed on the robot and yet increasing human safety factor of rescuers are among the advantages of using rescue robots. By the experience of rescue operation in Bam earthquake and participating in some robocup competitions, a new four-wheeled robot has been designed which has highly operational capability. In initial part of this article, robot locomotion and controlling in different situations and the method of connection operator with robot are surveyed; then, sensors which are used in for navigation and victim detection are explained. At the end, the method of generating the map of robot’s movement route, which is very important for identifying the trapped victim's location in a rapid rescue operation, was studied.
