An autonomous robot plays an important role in the future of rescue operation in unknown environments. In this research a robot is capable of moving in tunnel and able to do operation in the tunnel. The robot is controlled wirelessly via Wifi communication using wifi router. The robot itself is equipped with a mini computer that is a Raspberry-Pi processor. The Raspberry-Pi is the brain for the robot as it gives out command on the movement of the robot and the data from the USB camera is collected and then transmitted to the computer. The robot is capable to go up 75 to 110 meters on Wifi signal. Once the connection is lost the robot will stop by itself. The robot is equipped with two batteries that last long and does run for more than 30 – 45 minutes. The robot is controlled via a computer that is programmed to run Ubuntu operating system. From the comfort of sitting in front of the computer the robot can be controlled from a distance and the live is then stream on the computer.
