A group of Turkish students from the Osmangazi University have developed a fire-fighting robot.
The robot features a fire-sensing system, which enables it to move towards the fire and put it out either directly or using a remote control.
University professor Fuad Bersaglia told Turkish Anadolu Agency that the robot will minimize human intervention when it comes to putting out a fire, which in turn will “minimize the losses that can be inflicted on humans while extinguishing a fire,” he said.
The Professor added that his students developed the robot within three months.
A spokesperson for the innovative team said that the robot can access spaces and locations that humans might find difficult to reach, which will help cut down on human and financial losses.
This week saw multiple devastating fire incidents around the globe-- most prominently a London tower tragedy and a Portugal wild fire, both of which took the lives of scores of innocents. Jordan also witnessed a forest fire that fortunately left no injuries thanks to the services, not least HM King Abdullah II’s brave intervention on the ground.
