MULTI-UTILITY VEHICLE is a vehicle which carries a folding bridge and multiple sensors. This vehicle is mainly used in war-field, it helps the soldiers to cross The un-even areas with the help of the bridge. It also helps other heavy vehicles to cross the disturbed path using its bridge. It is also equipped with multiple sensors like the fire detector, gas detector, light detector. This helps the soldiers to identify the different types of threats bearing poisonous gases, increase in temperature etc. from a longer distance. Those threats can be recognized by the soldiers with the help of buzzers equipped in the detector. As it is a remote vehicle which works on the wireless transmission of ZigBee, the light detector in the vehicle is used to automatically switch on the main lights when the visibility level starts decreasing due to sunlight. This project is already implemented in European countries during the First World War. It is an upcoming technology in our country. For solving the problem of the cooperation between multi-robots, a communication system based on the ZigBee network was designed. In the hardware of the robots, the ZigBee nodes are introduced. The multi-robots form a star network by the ZigBee nodes, and they keep communication with each other by the central node. The ZigBee network has many characteristics such as low cost, low power consume, strong anti-jamming ability and real-time performance etc, it adapts to the application of intelligence. Experiments showed that the communication between the robots is reliable. This scheme is a good way for robots to complete complex task and improve working efficiency.
