Universal emergency firefighting and handling robot

Service, emergency and rescue robot with the ability to combine a fire extinguishing system and a gripping system.

The robotic manipulator of the robot is designed with five degrees of freedom, installed on the crawler mobility subsystem. With the extinguishing medium passage in its own manipulation modules, with penetration into the extinguishing head in the axis of the gripping manipulator. A world novel solution is the accumulation of the gripping functions of the effector, along with the remote control of the angular rotation of its gripping jaws, to ensure the gripping ability of flat and irregular objects. Simultaneously with the use of the effector for extinguishing interventions via a remotely controlled firefighting tube. Simultaneously with the ability to infinitely rotate the effector through a sophisticated interface.

The project was developed with the support of financial contribution received from The Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic.
