The paradigm of GPS based Unmanned Robotic Ground Vehicle administered by the computer in the control room to exercise the defense operation is the lineation of the paper. The paper domain comprises of a self navigating robotic platform as a base on which the surveillance system and the remote triggered for a weapon are fitted. The microcontroller acts as a prime controlling element for the custom built vehicle.The GPS receiver has been interfaced with the vehicle which is capable of receiving information from the GPS satellites and finding out the location of the vehicle in terms of Latitude and longitude coordinates, anywhere on earth. The control room can transmit targeted location information to the robot, in terms of Latitude and longitude data. Once the vehicle receives this data,the microcontroller unit compares the targeted location with the present location and autonomously moves to the desired location.The movement of vehicle is detected by the Passive IR sensor, as the movement is detected the wireless camera is tuned on.Additionally the camera is mounted on a servo pan and tilt mechanism, which moves the camera in a scanning pattern to capture all the visible details around the vehicle. The video is transmitted to a control room, if the presence on enemy is detected the mounted weapon on the vehicle is triggered based on the commands from the control room. The algorithm for the proposed robotic ground vehicle is depicted in the form of pseudo code.
