A generic approach for the real-time navigation and rescue of Mobile Robot through the control of the thermography mapping and image processing of Quadcopter. For navigation and position, mobile robot has to solve two problems: Initially it is essential to determine the current location, and build path of the upcoming journey, free from obstacles especially in bad weather (smoke, fog, covered area). According to the scenario of the mission, thermography mapping is the solution for these problems. Quadcopter takes off from Mobile Robot, surveys the path and transmits thermography image to robot. Mobile Robot processes thermography images, detecting dangerous area, matching moving targets in real time, calculating the optimum trajectory and allow automatic navigate through the outdoor environment based on the programmed route.
