Abstract

This Major Qualifying Project designed and built a robot prototype of a first response unit for fire emergencies. The robot followed the guidelines and rules of the Trinity College Home Robot Fire Fighting Contest. The robot measured temperatures, distances, and accelerations to find candles and a baby doll that emits a simulated body heat. These operations are performed autonomously.
