Now-a-days, fire accidents are very common. Fire incident is a disaster that can potentially cause the loss of life, property damage and permanent disability to the affected victim. So, firefighting robots can be widely useful in industries or localities where the probability of accidental fire is more. The robot is designed to be compact in size than other conventional firefighting robot to ease small location entry for the deeper reach of extinguishing the fire in narrow space. The proposed vehicle can detect presence of fire and extinguish it automatically by using IR flame sensor, temperature sensor. It contains DC motors and motor driver to control the movement of the robot. And when it will detect fire then it will communicate with firefighters through text messages about the happening fire accident. The proposed robot has a water jet spray which is capable of sprinkling water. And the water level in tank is also monitored continuously and user is updated with the information of source availability. At the time of moving towards the source of fire, it may happen that it will come across some obstacles. Hence, it has obstacle avoiding capability to avoid it from hitting any obstacle for fire detection. It detects obstacles using ultrasonic sensors up to a range of 80cm. This increases capabilities of identifying fire locations automatically and ability to extinguish fire remotely at particular distance. The designed robot can also be controlled manually through Bluetooth.
