The present manuscript comes with an innovative thought of designing a rescue robot, which aims in aiding human caught on fire. The proposed robotic system will rescue into the fire and detect the human (being alive). The fire protective object detection sensor is used, as it has the ability to reserve its features even in the environment surrounded with smoke and high degree centigrade temperature (due to the fire explored). The body of the robot is made-up of a metal that protect its internal components. Arm 7 Micro controller to provide control and co-ordination between every component is adopted. The information regarding the victim can be communicated with the aid of mobile ad-hoc networks. Wireless communication system assists the robot by enabling the communication between the victim and the RT (Rescue Team). Mobile Ad Hoc Networking (MANET) based wireless communication algorithm has been used to provide the back and forth message transmission. The robot can send the feedback to an operator generally located at certain distance, which can guide the rescue team by providing in time information that saves the lives of victims. The entire robot deign is fire and heat protective so that it can easily enter into the regions where a rescuer cannot and can communicate to the RT (Rescue Team) by sending feedback regarding those who trapped on fire.
