Principal Investigator: Dr. Muhammad Bilal Kadri (PAF-KIET)

Co-Principal Investigator: Dr. Tariq Mairaj Rassol Khan (NUST-PNEC)

Research Grant: Rs 14.6 million

Funding Agency: National ICTR&D Fund Pakistan

Introduction

The aim of the project is to design and fabricate Intelligent Mobile Robots (IMRs) which are capable of fire fighting and disaster mitigation. The final product will be a small team of intelligent mobile robots with all the state of the art technologies embedded onto a single board. The board will be mounted on the mobile robots that will enable the robots to take intelligent decisions on the run and create an ad-hoc network at the disaster location.
