Camouflage robot plays a big role in saving human loses as well as the damages that occur during disasters. The main purpose of the paper is to design Blackbox with camouflage robot. One of the main features of this robot is camouflaging, i.e., sensor will catch the image of the surrounding, and the color of the surrounding will be detected by the color sensor and according to that the camouflage robot will change its color. Because of this feature, the robot cannot be easily detected by the enemies. Thus, it will gain more importance in the upcoming era. The robot basically consists of a vehicle mounted with color sensor, which is a part of camouflaging technique and night vision camera is used for observation purpose. Camouflage robot can be sent up to the required area for capturing the unusual happening from attacker. The camouflage robot basically works as an aid for the military. The motion of the camouflage robot can be operated by ZigBee module.
