Nowadays robots have been inching towards living beings in terms of performance, agility, accuracy and performance. But there is one domain which is yet to come to limelight i.e. autonomous rescue robots. This involves a parallel use of robot design and control systems to get it executed. Basically, in simpler terms, there is a risk of life is involved in such scenarios and it's always hoped that a robot deployed for such operations be working with high precision and recall. So, in this paper we have described the design and control of an autonomous amphibian all terrain six-legged robot with adaptive gait for rescue operations. To fulfill this, we have used LiDAR and camera in parallel to assist bot in locomotion and detect the victim. Achieving all of this needs a significant amount of on-board processing power, but at the same time has to be compact enough. Keeping this in mind, NVIDIA Jetson Nano seems to be promising choice to get all the processing done onboard. © 2020 IEEE.
