In natural disaster, quick rescue is required. However, quick rescue is very difficult because victims are most likely to be left at the place where the rescue team are hard to find, such as under debris of broken house. The necessity for the rescue robot, which assists the rescue team by searching and finding victims of a disaster, is increasing. Nowadays many researchers and facilities are focus on studying these kinds of robots. However, the robot which can respond to various disaster-affected areas is not yet developed. The purpose of this study is to develop a rough terrain running rescue robot moving around the disaster-affected area of earthquake. In this paper, we first suggest mechanical structures and functions for the platform of the rescue robot. Then based on the suggestion, we develop a novel platform for rescue robot. Finally, experimental results show the effectiveness of the platform.
