Paper Abstract

In many cases exploring robots work under harsh conditions such as presence of various kinds of obstacles, high temperature, and limited visibility, etc. So they are required to have tough mechanical structure, good sensing capability, and reliable communication capability for receiving operator's command and for sending information on the state of the robot and on environment to operator. In this study the methodology of implementing these capabilities on exploring robot is explained, and actually an exploring robot that can investigate hazardous or disaster sites is designed and implemented. Finally, the performance of the proposed exploring robot is tested under simulated disaster environment.
