Abstract

Natural Calamities always occur and which are unstoppable. Now humans are becoming aware in the concept of intelligent rescue operations in such calamities so that precious life and material can be saved though calamities cannot be stopped. Earthquakes, landslides are the examples of disasters. Such disasters produce devastating effect[1]. It is difficult for humans to work in such hazardous condition. Hence a lot of times humans are buried among the debris and it become impossible to detect them. A timely rescue can only save the people who are buried and wounded. So, during such times knowing ,from where exactly we must start the rescue is impossible and detection by rescue workers becomes time consuming and due to the vast area that gets affected it becomes more difficult. Mobile robots have been proposed to help humans and dogs in such dangerous situation and to perform tasks that neither humans, dogs nor existing tools can do[2]. So, this paper proposes a robot that moves in the calamities affected area and helps to identify alive people and continue rescue operations. This will give the proper direction to start the rescue operation thereby resulting in fast and safe rescue.
