Abstract: This paper focuses on a Robot which is biologically inspired from nature. Snakes are unique because they utilize the irregularities in the terrain and make an effective motion. This robot is designed to visualize the situation and to measure the environment parameters. Snake is composed of segments, those are individually controlled. In particular the locomotion of snake is controlled by CAN-bus. Among the all available buses the CAN-bus is faster and provides real time data transfer. A wireless technology (ZigBee) is introduced between robot section and monitoring section. The measured values are updated on the PC.
Keywords: Snake Robot, CAN-bus, Locomotion Control, Surveillance, Sensing.

Scope of the Article: Wireless Power Transmission
