Over the past decade, natural and human-induced disasters have claimed millions of lives. Intelligent robots equipped with advanced sensors and integrating wireless networks are attracting attention from researchers and rescuers all around the world. This paper is an application of the Wireless Sensor Network to disaster management. The wireless sensor network consists of two fixed nodes and moving nodes with the robot and rescue teams. The search robot autonomously navigates, searches for living human beings, collects data from the air quality control module, localizes it with respect to the fixed nodes and sends the data. The rescue team can wirelessly receive the data in real time and locate the robot precisely.
