Search and Rescue robotics is a relatively new field of research, which is growing rapidly as new technologies emerge. However, the robots that are usually applied to the field are generally small and have limited functionality, and almost all of them rely on direct control from a local operator. In this paper, a novel wheeled Search and Rescue robot is proposed which considers new methods of controlling the robot, including using a wireless “tether” in place of a conventional physical one. A prototype is then built which acts as a proof of concept of the robot design and wireless control. The prototype robot is then evaluated to prove its mobility, wireless control and multi-hop networking. The experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed design incorporating the rocker-bogie suspension system and the multi-hop method of “wireless tethering”.
