The use of robots in different fields is common and effective in developed countries. In case of incident management or emergency rescue after a catastrophe, robots are often used to lessen the human effort where it is either impossible or life-threatening for rescuers. In this research paper, thus we proposed a low-cost "Rescue-Robot" for pro-catastrophe management which can overcome the budget-constraints as well as fully capable of rescue purposes for incident management. Alive human body detection system proposed a monitoring system using ultrasonic sensors and camera to record, transmit and analyze conditions of human body. The task of identify human being in rescue operations is difficult for the robotic agent but it is simple for the human agent. Having detected a sign of a living human, the ultrasonic sensor Triggers the camera to show live scene. The video is then displayed on the screen. This approach requires a relatively small number of data to be acquired and processed during the rescue operation. This way, the real-time cost of processing and data transmission is considerably reduced. This system has the potential to achieve high performance in detecting alive humans in devastated environments relatively quickly and cost-effectively. The detection depending on a number of factorssuch as the body position and the light intensity of the scene. Results show that the system provides an efficient way to track human motion. The aim of this article is to present our experience with various sensors designed and developed.
