Abstract: Robotic systems are increasingly being utilized as fundamental data-gathering tools by scientists, allowing a new perspective and a greater understanding of the planet and its environmental processes. This paper discusses the design of a robotic platform within a wireless sensor network to monitor the environmental changes. The system includes various sensors for measuring temperature, pressure, humidity and light intensity in an environment. The wireless transceiver mounted on the robot sends the collected data simultaneously to the PC, which enables long distance communication. The obstacle detector robot can be controlled by giving commands through PC. It also consists of a sensor for detecting the presence of different gases like methane, CO, alcohol, propane and LPG.
