Sensite measures environmental gas composition in unmanned fire fighting robot
In co-operation with Brandweer Nederland and the Ministry of Safety and Justice, Dutch company Geoborn (http://mtcr.nl) has developed the MCTR, (Micro Turbine Compressed Air Foam System Robot), an unmanned fire fighting robot that is fully remotely controlled. The versatile robot can be utilized for various types of fires in parking garages, tunnels and all other locations too hazardous for people to enter. Next to the 13 cameras, the robot is equipped with Sensite’s wireless sensors for measurements of Environmental gas composition (O2, CO, CO2, CH4) and temperatures of the turbine platform, within, and around the robot.
