Solar energy is a green energy that has eased the mankind's dependency on nonrenewable sources of energy. This paper is based on the concept of utilizing solar energy to power a wirelessly controlled four-wheeled surveillance robot. Firstly, a solar charge controller is designed and then a wireless controller for the robot is designed. The output of charge controller is given to electrical drive circuit of the robot. In today's world of uncertainty, surveillance and security are of prime importance. The hardware is implemented for the same and integrated with a surveillance camera. This paper aims to control and design a robot that can be used to monitor defense activities or can be used to explore the unidentified territories that can pose a threat to any physical entity. It can also be used for general security purposes.
