In today’s commercial, industrial and domestic world, Automation plays an important role, it is actually an arrangement of different elements in order to regulate, direct, sense and command itself to achieve a desired result. “Automatic Fire Fighting Robot” project employs the electrical thermostat technology for the controlling the fire 24 hrs. Robotics has gained popularity due to the advancement of many technologies of computing and nano technologies. So, we proposed to design something that can make humans life easier and comfortable. There are many possibilities a fire can start in an industry or in any remote area. For example, in cotton mills, garments, fuel storages, etc., electric leakages can lead to huge damage. Also it’s a worst-case scenario, causing heavy losses not only financially but also destroying areas surrounding it. Robotics is the emerging solution to protect human lives and their wealth and surroundings. The aim here is to design a FIRE FIGHTING ROBOT using Arduino system. A robot capable of fighting a simulated household fire will be designed and built. It must be able to autonomously navigate through a modeled floor plan while actively scanning for a flame. The robot can even act as a path guider in normal case and as a fire extinguisher in emergency. Robots designed to find a fire, before it rages out of control, can one day work with fire-fighters greatly reducing the risk of injury to victims. The project will help generate interests as well as innovations in the fields of robotics while working towards a practical and obtainable solution to save lives and mitigate the risk of property damage.
