Firefighting robot unveiled in Dubai

Saturday, February 06, 2016

A robot designed to extinguish fire and help in civil defence was launched during an international technology competition here.

The robot called 'Fire Bot' is part of Dubai Civil Defence's plans to adopt non-conventional systems and technologies to improve the safety of residents and property.

The innovation unveiled yesterday at the UAE Drones for Good Award competition is capable of carrying out critical tasks remotely by connecting to extinguishing systems in buildings and automatically moving to the source of fire to carry out the initial fire extinguishing process until the arrival of firefighters.

It can also be used to carry out awareness campaigns in malls and is a result of collaboration between Dubai Civil Defence and Digi Robotics, a company that offers specialised solutions and technologies in robotics and artificial intelligence systems, a statement said.

The robot will be subject to a trial period of three months and then evaluated at the end of the period to determine its technical and operational efficiencies.
