Abstract
The article highlights the problem of safe conducting of search-and-rescue operations in emergency coal mines. As a solution of the problem, the multiple-link robot with rotary-screw mover is proposed. The work includes the description of the construction of the created experimental model of the platform and the configuration of the remote control system. The authors give the results of running tests of the experimental model and plans of the model modifying.

Key words
Emergency coal mine, rescue, remote control system, unmanned technologies, computer vision, rotary-screw mover.
