#video | Japanese engineers have developed roboclam for firefighters

Engineers under the leadership of Satoshi Tadokoro from Tohoku University in Japan presented a fire robot that can hang in the air and put out the fire. On the development of the portal IEEE Robotics.

Hovering in the air flying robotic hose uses water jet. The device consists of a water hose with modules and nozzles and are connected to the computer. The main module, the engineers had built in the end of the hose, it can be used to keep the hose in the air and put out the fire.

In some cases, firefighters difficult to get directly to the source of the fire to extinguish it. For example, fire can occur in a large building, which is not safe to enter through the main entrance. For such cases, engineers propose to use flying robots-firefighters are able to get to the place of fire through Windows or other parts of the building.

For the stability of floating robosense the developers have created a control system. Instead of changing the intensity of the fluid flow, they chose the structurally more simple circuit and decided to change its direction. For this, they have fixed part of the nozzle by electric motors. In addition, for every 40 feet of hose installed inertial modules, tracking their movement with high accuracy. Engineers wrote an algorithm that allows the robot to track the position of all your segments and to compensate for the displacement due to the rotation of the nozzles.
