Abstract

Disaster is a sudden accident or a natural calamity that causes great damage or loss of life and property. In any disastrous conditions, a lot of manpower is wasted and still unable to save some lives. A biomorphic hyper-redundant snake-like robot may help in such situations. Its excellent property of getting into small spaces and ability to traverse along any surface can be very helpful in search and rescue operations. These robots can help to locate humans in a disaster and provide precise information about its condition to rescuers. It can also be used in other domains like military, underwater, aerospace, and nuclear. In this research, the mechanical modelling and simulation of snake robot body have been carried out. Different speeds have been achieved on various surfaces where the snake robot has to traverse. An algorithm is proposed for human detection based on a YOLO algorithm. PCB design for the power supply is carried out and two types of gait motion (lateral undulation and side winding) have been achieved by the snake robot.
