Abstract: Researchers at the Institute of Technology in Izmir, Turkey, have successfully developed a mechanical firefighter robot that will work inside the flames. The robot uses both passive and active cooling systems that, for a limited time, keep the inner temperature at a safe level for the electronic components inside the device, to survive the flame. The body of the robot is made of aluminum and comprises two shells attached to each other with rods. The robot is controlled with a remote unit by an operator, who can observe the fire via a CCD camera. Control and cooling subsystems will allow the robot to work in these rough conditions. The control system allows the robot to use the navigation system as well as the sensory and cooling systems. The robot will be controlled with radiofrequency communications and is able to break doors and climb stairs to work in upper-level fires.
