Abstract— Technological Advancements in mechanical and electrical engineering has progressed to greater extent these days. The field of Robotics have increased drastically in its usage for various dangerous and repetitive tasks. It is known fact that many Industrial applications are risky and difficult for potential and hazardous environments. Hence there is a need to design a climbing robot wirelessly using RF technology to operate from any remote location for hazardous environments. However robots are faster and accurate in control theory practices with high performance advanced algorithms. The designed Robotic system includes various modules like wireless communication with RF module, DC motors for movements of robots in various angles and dimensions, ARM 8 microcontroller performs controlling and monitoring of operations, driving unit. This robotic unit is controlled and operated using smart phone keys using RF module. Based on the data received from RF module the ARM 8 microcontroller processes the resultant action. The Robotic arm acts accordingly as instructed from microcontroller to perform human user action. The embedded c is used for programming the controller. The controlled action performed by the robotic unit is recorded using wireless AV camera and transmitted as live audio and video in to the receiver section for display in to pc or laptop for a control and user action.
