Unmanned ground robot for diffusing explosives with surveillance

Received Date:07 July 2020, Accepted Date:03 August 2020, Published Date:27 August 2020


Background/Objectives: In the worldwide scenario diffusing any explosive is the challenging task for any defense. This research aims to develop an unmanned ground robot for disusing such explosives with live surveillance. Methods/Statistical analysis: Diffusing any explosive requires human effort adversely at risk. Incorporating a lightweight mobile robot consisting 4 DOF robotic arms which can do multiple operations with a tool armor. Also, a moving vehicle that can crawl lobes and travel to places where a human cannot reach while operating the robot with radio frequency which is difficult to hack in a short span along with live 360o video transmitting system.Findings: Surveillance system developed can observe the motion tracking and visual identification to study the type of explosive. This wireless diffusion system prototype can be operated remotely within a range of 100 meters while surveillance and operating the robotic arms. This unmanned ground robot can stream live at 60Hz and can sense any motions in the vicinity of the camera with security alert of movements by artificial intelligence. In the context current robots run on IR transmitter, RF transmission used in the current unmanned ground robot can be operated even in the vicinity of signal jammers. Novelty/Applications: Unmanned ground robot is unique with its RF transmitter with 360o live steaming operating multiple interchangeable armors with artificial intelligence identifying the motions in the vicinity of the surveillance.
