Abstract: This paper addresses the problem associated with wheel mobile robots used for military applications. These mobile robots are used for dealing with potential explosives. Sometimes while dealing with improvised explosives tools are required. These tools need to be carried by the robot to the suspected area. Hence an automatic tool changeover is suggested that can carry the tools to the civilian or military settings and can be easily assembled on the platform of wheel robot.
