Fire Fighter Robot


This report talks about the firefighter robot which can be used for fighting against the fire and which can be controlled from a safe distance. The most important objectives of designing such a device were to design and implement a test environment. Also, the main objective was to design and fabricate the frame of the robot. Furthermore, it was necessary to design and implement a drive system. Some of the constraints in this project were that the designed robotic machine was not able to climb up the stairs. Also, the material was not able to perform with a hundred percent efficiency if the ambient temperature was quite high. This project was the team effort of the two students and work was evenly divided between the two classmates. Dimensional analysis was done for the parts which were utilized in the project right from the start. After that, the whole design of the firefighter robot was made by using the SOLIDWORK software in which the dimensions of all of the parts like the wheel, chain the water tank, camera position, and the top, as well as the bottom frame, was created. The water tank pressure was analyzed with the use of the formulas of physics. The force on the hose was calculated due to the pressure of water. The parts of the construction were a 360-degree camera, motorized arm, fluid tank, front spacer, backspacer, and camera base which were purchased from online stores. Robotic arm holder widget produced some issues during the performance check which was fixed at the end. It was found during the test, the robotic arm was easily rotating 100 degrees and was able to lift the tube and nozzle. Robotic arm holder was not strong enough and it was broken during the test.
