Fire environments are dangerous and constantly changing. The goal of this project was to design and build a robot to provide firefighters with additional information about a fire environment to help them make more informed decisions when fighting a fire. We have built a prototype robot that is compact and quick to deploy, with a heat, water, and impact-resistant chassis designed to function in unpredictable firegrounds. The remote-controlled robot returns a real-time video feed and a heat map of a designated area in a building.
