This is an earthquake rescue robot, a robot hero that can save people's lives in disaster scenes. With the help of the ultrasonic sensor, it can avoid the obstacles in front of it autonomously. Meanwhile, it also got a LED module which can be used to light up the path to look for survivors. By using a passive infrared sensor, it is able to detect people even if the visibility is impaired. As well as these sensors, it is also equipped with a gripper which can dig through rubble or help the survivors to safety.
