The goal of this Major Qualifying Project (MQP) is to create a drone equipped with an automatic flame sensing and water spraying system to overcome the major problems faced during firefighting. These problems faced by firefighting include lack of knowledge about the building construction, fire intensity, and knowing about the building tenability and victim viability. Work on the drone deals with the proof of concept, exhibiting the scalability of this system for large scale fires. During testing of heights 10 feet or below, the drone performed most effectively. The drone that we built was capable of suppressing small fires at a distance of 4 feet from the fire. This is achieved with a custom-designed spraying system controlled by a flame sensor.
