Project Description

Fire is a good servant but a bad master. According to statistics in the USA in 2015, fire accidents have killed around 3000 civilians causing 15000 injuries not to mention the damage of the properties. The fire department responds to a fire every 23 seconds it takes 4-6 minutes to get to the fire but it only takes 3 minutes for a fire to reach the flashover point. Because of our limited abilities as humans firemen can’t get into the fire scene so they use their experience and knowledge to state the facts and that won’t only cost time but also loss of human lives not to mention the wrong assumptions that firemen may conclude and based on them they will react in ways that may cause more damage. So, in order to decrease the number of victims who’ve been killed by fires and also decrease the number of losses; we replace the firemen with a set if cooperating firefighting robots.
