Abstract : One of the biggest challenges in today’s world in the field of robotics is rescue robotics. This paper aims in the design and implementation of mobile robot for the search and rescue operations in natural calamities such as earthquakes. These rescue robots reduce the response time as compared to humans and help in getting information to the rescue teams using sensors. The main issues concerned with the present rescue robots are modularity, mobility, durability, and robustness. The robot is designed considering all the required parameters in SOLIDWORKS CAD and simulated in Rviz with the control interface as Robot Operating System (ROS). The robot is designed in such a way that it can do all the mobility tasks like climbing stairs, moving on uneven terrains, step fields, sand, and gravel, as well as exploring tasks like finding the injured victims and hazardous signs.
