Wildland Firefighting Robot (FiGo)Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
With the increasing scale of wildfires across the western United States, robots can fill the gap in manpower needed to combat these fires. The goal of this project is to design and build a scaled-down robot that will lay the groundwork in effective and autonomous indirect fireline robotic construction. The robot is driven by teleoperation or by autonomously following flags. In order to adjust the plow position, two separate subsystems have been developed to control the plow horizontally and vertically. The robot is able to traverse terrain safely and efficiently, as well as provide methods to simulate the removal of flammable material on the ground to expose the mineral soil.
