To aid people working in hazardous situations such as defence, military and for those pursuing research, a robot based on superimposing technique capable of performing any task and which can be controlled via wireless or wired link is proposed in this paper. These robots will be of immense use in such situations as they can fill in the roles of human beings. The distance between the robot and the point of control can be upto 75km. The movement pattern of the robot follows that of the human who controls it. If the robot is controlled by a wireless link, then the control signals are transmitted via FM and if it is a wired link, then the signals are sent from a computer. To get better precision and resolution in control, an Auto. Calibration technique is also used. Any movement made by the user will be replicated by the robot at a distance place. This method completely eliminates the need for sensors to be mounted on the robot and is very cheap compared to the existing techniques with robots.
