In this study, a mobile robot serving in dangerous and narrow areas for human is designed. The mobile robot consists of a mobile platform and 4-dof robot arm with a gripper. This robotic system can be controlled via either a computer based interface program or a microprocessor controlled module independently operated. The communication between the user and mobile robot is provided by transmitting wirelessly the data from a RF transmitter module to a RF receiver on the mobile platform. The user transfers the data to the USB port of the computer using the designed interface program. The control operation is performed by processing this data with a designed microcontroller board. Furthermore, the objects in the environments and direction of the mobile robot can be seen with cameras and laser LED on the robot at day and night.
