In rescue robotics, mobile robot platforms are used for search and rescue operations in the disaster zone. The design and realization of the robot from the idea to a working prototype require extensive knowledge and experience in mechanical, electrical and computer engineering. In the design and construction steps, mathematical calculations and manufacturing steps are carried out to realize the robot. Both digital and physical prototyping are explained and their differences and necessities are clarified. Later in the optimization stage risk analysis, functional conflicts, availability of materials, manufacturing capabilities and testing are considered and included in the design of a final prototype for better performance. This chapter explains the practice of rescue robot prototyping and the knowledge explained in this study can be applied to other mobile robotic fields.
