TECDRON showcases new fire-fighting robot at the ESS 2018
TECDRON, a French Design & Engineering office specialised in mobile land robotics, will be presenting its new fire-fighting robot SENTINEL at the Emergency Services Show.
The company has been collaborating with fire brigades since 2014 and has already designed and produced several platforms to assist with firefighting operations. More recently, TECDRON has won the biggest tender ever published in Europe by the Parisian Fire Brigade for operational assistance robots.
SENTINEL is a remotely operated platform designed to assist firefighters and emergency responders with dangerous, difficult and physically demanding tasks during operations. It is equipped with electric motors and caterpillar tracks, allowing indoor and outdoor operation with a running time of 4 to 6 hours. It is ideally suited to fires with restricted visibility and very high temperatures such as underground fires (tunnels, underground car parks), or any fire with a risk of explosions such as warehouses, industrial sites or refineries.
SENTINEL is very versatile. It can be equipped with various equipment making it able to perform several successive tasks: remotely operated water monitor, thermal cameras, stretcher holders allowing casualty evacuation, day / night cameras, smoke extraction fan, storage case for heavy loads transportation, etc.
Thanks to important R&D investments, TECDRON is proud to be presenting its most powerful and reliable platform ever, with brand new and original functionalities such as:
- A real-time monitoring system of the robot’s components
- Remote update of the robot software
- Remote supervision and preventive maintenance
- Embedded data logger facilitating remote pre-diagnosis
- High-temperature self-protection system
