Abstract

The goal of our project was to develop a comprehensive report on the potential benefits and implementation of a robot program for the Bomberos of Costa Rica to expand their capabilities in emergency situations and reduce risk to emergency personnel. We researched existing firefighting robot technology and conducted interviews of Bomberos stations in order to gather information about the most frequent and dangerous emergencies, and recommended action plans for developing a robotic program that would best benefit the needs of the Bomberos.
