As autonomous vehicle technology is becoming the most promising and expanding field in control system engineering so it should be a preliminary consideration to develop an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) that can perform reconnaissance and surveillance operations where risking human life is unwise. The goal of this project is to build up a vehicle that could reach to a required destination by a wireless control. Multi-Terrain and surveillance robot (MTASR) is a powerful, robust, well-designed and relatively inexpensive UGV. It is equipped with MODTRONIX board along with a Wi-Fi module. The control of the vehicle was achieved using MODTRONIX board, which control all the activities of the robot including communication and manoeuvring. Using the wireless device allowed us to work with IP, which made our task simple, we would be able to connect to the robot using any computer that had Wi-Fi capability and the security clearance. IP camera is used for surveillance and a Wi-Fi router for communication. The robot is operated in manual mode where the operator can use the graphical user interface (GUI) specifically designed for the robot to manoeuvre and control it. GUI was developed using C# (c sharp) language.
