Abstract

The Fire Fighter Robot has been made in this project which can fight against the fire and that should be controllable over WiFi from the particular distance. The main objective of the design was that to fabricate the frame of the robot on which the whole top part of the robot can sit. The main constraint was that high-level skills were required for the implementation of some sections. The bottom part of the robot was first designed on the SOLIDWORK and Fusion360 software. the Whole dimensions were set for the bottom part so that the water tank, camera and the top frame can easily sit on it. During the mechanical checkup of the cart it was found that the velocity of the cart was 2 m/s while during the one rotation the cart was covering the 12.56 inches’ distance. During the motion on the smooth surface the force of the friction was found to be 313.9 N. The chained wheel in this part of the project had 52 links while the bottom part had the size of 33 lb. All the purchases were done from the Amazon except a few widgets were manufactured in a machine shop. To assemble all the parts with the chaises, few widgets were made such as the battery base, camera base robotic arm holder. All the widgets were manufactured by a CNC milling machine, lathe and a 3D printer. The final product which was made after joining the bottom and top part was able to move nicely on the floor. The cost of the whole project remained in the specific limits which was forecasted before the start of the project. All the drilling and assembling process was completed within the timeline. The robot was able to work quite perfectly in 70-degree Celsius Temperature.
