An intelligent hexapod rescue robot
MetadataShow full item record
This report proposes a survivor robot model inspired by the physique of a spider which can be used in the cases of search and rescue operations. Multiple walking algorithms have been tested on the robot and have been narrowed down to the most efficient walking algorithm among them. The control of the robot has been done by an embedded android controller. The navigation of the spider-bot has been implemented based on a six-leg system, which will be very convenient in rough terrains. Functional algorithms have been implemented to move the robot under duress and onto challenging fields. Moreover, these algorithms aids to the various speed parameters of the robot based on the structure of the legs. Each of the legs has been designed using three servo motors controlling the limbs from different joints. We have developed a unique algorithm to detect life and send the distance and direction of the life from the robot to respond team. Additionally, a prototype has been developed for experimental purpose and finally it has been upgraded to its final version.
