Hardware Implementation of a Robot Capable of Detecting and Extinguishing a Flame

Gabriel-Petrut Badicioiu, Alexandru Savulescu


In this paper, it has been conducted a study referring to building an autonomous robot, whose mission is to look for the flames that have occurred accidentally, to warn human operators of the existence of the fire and to extinguish it. The robot described in this paper is capable of detecting sources of fire regardless of the angle they are under, being equipped with four flame sensors. While moving to the source of fire, the robot will avoid all the obstacles encountered in his path. When the robot reaches the fire, the two robotic arm servomotors are actuated in order to pose the end-effector (a fan) so that it will extinguish the fire.
