The current Indian population is 1.29 billion out of which the occurrence of cancer is estimated to be around 2.6 million with over 9,00,000 new cancer patient and 6,50,000 cancer related deaths occurring every year. About 70% to 80% of the current patient diagnosed in advanced stage accounting without proper medications.More than 7% of deaths in India are due to various types of cancers which contribute to 8% to 10% of global cancer mortality. To lead a step to reduce this rate, this work aims to design a nanobot (nano robot) which can effectively identify the cancer growth using the concept called Positron Emission Tomography that comes under the branch of Acoustic Bio-Signalling.The simulation of the robot will be presented through "robot simulation software" where the tracking is done through embedded programming, so as to configure its movement and requirements through every cycle of "change of state".A prototype of the Nanobot is constructed through hardware with the help of robot-specific apparatus and with the same norms of a line follower robot. © 2018 The Authors.
