Abstract

The use of autonomous intelligent robots in search and rescue (SAR) is a new and challenging field of robotics dealing with tasks in extremely hazardous and complex disaster environments. Intelligent, biologically inspired mobile robots and, in particular serpetine mechanisms have turned out to be widely used robot types, providing effective, immediate, and reliable responses to many SAR operations. This paper outlines the challenges of serpentine search robot hardware, sensor-based path planning, and control design.
