Firefighting Remote Exploration Device II Public
Downloadable ContentDownload PDF
The need for “smart” recovery for disasters is at the forefront. Firefighters operating in indoor firegrounds are put at risk by the constantly changing environment. The use of robotics in firefighting can assist firefighters by informing them about different aspects of the fireground, such as the structural layout and temperature distribution. Taking inspiration from a design devised by a previous WPI Major Qualifying Project, our team prototyped a heat, water, and impact-resistant robot capable of navigating around obstacles in the fireground and returning relevant real-time data. In this year’s iteration, a new chassis was designed, a new pair of whegs were designed, a battery management system was integrated, and a new user interface was created.
