FUB / Firefighting robot


The firefighter-assisting-robot FUB is designed for a lot of applications to fight the fire. Depending on its modular equipment the robot can be initiated as a tool-, first-aid- or extinguishing-agent-supplier. FUB also can be used as a scout, collecting important data from the fire location. In case of hazardous circumstances FUB is able to replace human aide.
Together with human teammates and equiped with a small watertank and impulse-extinguisher modules, FUB can set up a fast and powerful crew without beeing addicted to time-consuming peripheral devices. FUB can also be used in a swarm with other robots.
