Nowadays, the surveillance of a single robot can be controlled by a single base station. Here we designed a networked robots consists of one base station and two surveillance robots. If one of the surveillance robots (slave) exceed the coverage range of the base station, then the nearest robot acts as a base station (master) with their authentication. If the nearest robot unable to acts as a base station then the request from slave robot cannot be accepted, then the slave robot does not exceed

In our research, we have used proximity sensors, PIR sensor, gas sensors, and fire sensors. The created networked robots are connected via RF protocol and monitored using TV output. The network could be used to accommodate real-time VoIP or live video-streaming connection, and environmental or biomedical sensor data, so that the rescuers can better assess the condition of the civilians and plan their own actions accordingly. These capabilities cannot be provided with the traditional whistle or personal emergency devices, but an actual network is needed. With recent advances in small-size robotics and wireless communications, emergency response robots can also be used to form ad hoc networks.
