This mBot has four sensors, including
1. a Me Ultrasonic Sensor,

* With the Ultrasonic Sensor, mBot can detect the obstacles and avoid them.
* With the PIR Sensor, mBot can perceive the survivors and increase the rescue efficiency.
* With Temperature and Humidity Sensor and Gas Sensor, mBot can detect whether temperature and humidity have surpassed safe levels or whether there is a gas leak. mBot can sound the buzzer and light the LED for warning.
