Idea Details

Idea Name: Blitz
Slogan: Beat the Blaze !
Startup Domain: Safe Cities
Abstract:
    the Project focuses on the automation of the water ejection mechanism of a fire fighting robot with a mobility of 2 DOF, operated by a distant user though a remote control.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Wildfires in Pakistan kill 16,500 people and leave 164,000 injured or disabled every year. Primitive techniques of extinguishing fires consists of manual ways having limited adroitness and insufficient protection for the human firefighters. This idea aims operator's safety and life security.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Local fire fighting departments of all cities, Rescue 1122 teams and emergency service providers can make a use of this automated technology for aid in extinguishing procedure. Our survey of 1122 rescue office gave a positive response about their interest in using automated Blitz firefighter.
How will the solution works
    The platform for water ejection mechanism is a UGV, which uses high transversibilty flippers.The mechanism consists of a rotatable arm to attach hose and desired nozzle from an external source.2 DOF is achieved by two revolute joints, providing required mobility to the mechanism. The rotation of the structure is controlled by motor driven gears.Linear actuator is responsible for the translation of nozzle along y -axis.Movement and ejection through nozzle is controlled via wireless communication
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Traditional means of fire extinguishing in Pakistan are merely manual. so the design has its innovation in being automated and providing safety for human firefighters. The safety of life is the basic advantage over all other fire-extinguishing methods. No potential competitors are there in Pakistan.
