Design and manufacturing of a fireproof fire rescue robot
The aim of this thesis is to design and manufacture fireproof fire rescue robot for extinguishing fire. The robot is designed and manufactured to go in the middle of fire, extinguish it and send images from incident area by using a camera to increase knowledge about fire behavior. This robot makes it possible to extinguish fire without spreading in the shortest time. This will reduce the risk of injury and number of casualties for firefighters as well as for the possible victims. The robot can also decrease the monetary losses which increase considerably as fire duration increases.For designing the fireproof fire rescue robot three dimensional solid modeling computer program was used. The semi-autonomous robot is powered by two DC electric actuators. It goes on the ground with tracking system which is manufactured by using sprockets and chains. To prevent possible damages that may be incurred by heat, the robot was covered with a ceramic fiber paper that has very low thermal conductivity.In addition to mechanical design of the fireproof fire rescue robot, two electronic circuits are mounted in order to control actuators and solenoid valve of the extinguisher.Furthermore, in order to control actions of the robot remotely by the operator, two remote controls are used at different frequencies.As a result of this thesis; a fireproof fire rescue robot is designed and manufactured to be used in fire incidents. Also some ideas were expressed to improve the fireproof fire rescue robot by gained experience throughout the thesis.
