We wanted to develop a robot that could help firemen survey a room or building and record the different temperatures.
What it does
Flame Fighter records the temperature at different areas of a confined space and at the end of surveying it goes to the the point with the highest temperature.
How I built it
We used an arduino tank bot and attached sensors to it to record the temperatures.
Challenges I ran into
Creating the different algorithms to record temperatures at specific points of the room. Also to create code to combine all of the senors.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to use the ultrasonic sensor to record its position in the room.
What I learned
We acquired intuition on how to begin a prototype and how to carry it out until the end.
What's next for Flame Fighter
Allowing it to adapt to rooms that don't resemble a polygon.
