Just A Few Years Ago, This Was Science Fiction
What if drones can help fight fires? Today, drone use has extended beyond the military. This video offers a look at the possibility of incorporating Quad-rotor drones to help fight fires. The U.S. Airforce’s research lab demonstrates how a collaborative team of quad-rotor drones can use autonomy technology to make informed decisions about smoked-filled rooms in the event of a fire.
According to CNN, data collected by drones can be used to redeploy fire-fighting resources, assess effectiveness of containment operations, and move critical personnel and equipment from hazardous fire conditions. Firefighters save not only time, but possibly their lives by using these drones as their front line of defense.
