Vision guided mobile robotic system equipped with stereo vision system and Laser range finder has been designed and fabricated. The environmental data acquired by the sensors will be processed by the on board computer. The robot is capable to navigate in specific area for searching of hazardous material. During this searching it will navigate and develop the map of the surrounding simultaneously. For the subsequent search missions the developed maps may be used for map based navigation purpose. The operator can interact with the robotic system with the help of a remote computer, which is connected to the autonomous vehicle le by wireless LAN.
