Collapse of man-made structures, such as buildings and bridges earth quakes and fire accident, occur with varying frequency across the world. In such a scenario, the survived human beings are likely to get trapped in the cavities created by collapsed building material. During post disaster rescue operations, searchand-rescue crews have a very limited or no knowledge of the presence, location, and number of the trapped victims. Deep learning is a fast-growing domain of machine learning, mainly for solving problems in computer vision. One of the implementation of deep learning is detection of objects including humans, based on video stream. Thus, the presence of a human buried under earthquake rubble or hidden behind barriers can be identified using deep learning. This is done with the help of USB camera which can be inserted into the rubble. Spotter also gives an audio message about the location of the human presence and gives the area where the human is likely to be present. Human detection is done with the help of Computer Vision using OpenCV.
