In order to improve our life further, it is our inspiration to develop efficient robotic systems that can assist our usual need. The system that we are developing not only bring forward efficiency and credibility for daily usage or research platform, but when natural catastrophes like earthquake happens to strike, our robotic system is also capable of entering post-disaster sites and collect information about victim states that will be transmitted to the human rescuers, so that a more accurate and efficient rescue mission can be carried out. This paper presents the up-to-date information about our robotic system development of two different types of robots, the snake-type and the wheel-type.
