In order to perform the urban search and rescue task in dangerous condition, a novel robot named Amoeba II is designed based on synthesis of the snake-like robot and the tracked vehicle. It can transform its body shape to adapt to the environment. On the one hand, this robot adopts the tracked drive mechanism to acquire high performance on the climb. On the other hand, this robot is portable due to lightweight and small bulk, which benefits the quick rescue response after calamity. Amoeba II consists of two mobile units and one expanding unit. The former one is to realize the locomotion and the last one is to expand the body to adapt to the environment. The experimental results validate the capability of Amoeba II
