Abstract – Coal mining has various fatal factors which menace the people. After a coal mine disaster the situation inside the tunnel is very dangerous as well as situation inside the tunnel is not known to the rescuers. Entering into a mine without knowing the exact situation is dangerous as the chances of second explosion is high as well as the disaster results in increased level of harmful gases like CO,CO2,decreased oxygen level and high temperature. Many rescuers are killed by this increased level of harmful gases and second explosion. Detecting this situation inside the tunnel is main objective of this paper. The robot can go into the explosive environment with autonomous obstacle avoidance system. The sensors Senses the harmful gases such as CO, CO2, Methane, temperature and transmits the data through wireless module. A coal mine robot can move into the mine and detect the level of different toxic gases and vibration and send the result to the control room. In this paper a robot based wireless monitoring and safety system for underground mines using RF module is proposed, which will take the data of environmental parameters of underground mine using different sensors and send the data to control room using RF module. This whole system will be placed on a robot which is operated by remote. Use of wireless robot will reduce the human intervention in security system and will improve the safety.
