Abstract: Natural calamities and disasters such as building collapse, post-tsunami, earthquakes are some of the most disastrous situation mankind faces and, in such situations, rescuing of survivors is the most critical job. This paper discusses the design and development of swarm robotics, which can be used in such disasters in order to search for survivors and several other research purposes. The swarm robots in the current project are controlled by a centralized system where all the bots connect to a common IoT cloud. Through which they communicate and store all the accumulated data. The bots also use several sensors such as GPS location tracker, an ultrasonic sensor for obstacle and edge detection for maneuvering purposes, LM35 temperature sensor. The current system also is developed with a unique novel hybrid 6-wheel design which will help in easy maneuvering over rough terrain.
