Project Title: Firefighting Robot MQP

When: Friday November 30th @ 3pm

Where: Fuller Labs 311

Project Abstract:

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