Research Project

Design and development of Intelligent Mobile Robots (IMRs) for disaster mitigation and firefighting

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


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.
