SmokeBot Guides Firefighters through Smoke-Filled Areas

SmokeBot Guides Firefighters through Smoke-Filled Areas
Jun-20-18
The SmokeBot navigates and plots maps through dense smoke to help guide firefighters through dangerous areas.

The SmokeBot was created by a team led by Örebro University, and is equipped with a LiDAR unit, 3D radar camera and a stereo thermal camera. As the bot trundles through the building via remote control, the collected data is sent to an external device. The bot can also detect gases and their concentration, providing an early warning of a potential explosion.

Currently , the team is working to increase the speed of the SmokeBot so it can navigate the burning building more quickly.
