Coal mine Call mice / Robot

Coal mine Call mice
Coal mine Call mice

In the mines, workers may hate mice, but in reality they don't. One of the rules of mining is that you shouldn't kill mice. Because rats are the first to evacuate in case of gas. So workers say they feel uneasy without rats in the mine. I got the idea here, a robot that detects gas in a mine with the motif of a mouse. The robot is designed to detect itself in every corner of the mine and send a signal to the workers' helmets
as soon as it detects gas leaks. Considering the topography of the mine, the robot's body is made of metal, and the wheels are made of thick wheels that are used off-road.
