Fire Extinguisher Drone

Anurag Verma, Sunil Kumar, Sandeep Kumar, Saurabh Verma, Anurag Dwivedi


This paper focuses on using a hexacopter to remotely put out tiny flames in order to protect firemen and maybe even more people from harm as well as to avert catastrophic or even fatal mishaps. Its use in firefighting will make it simpler to access and manage fire breakouts. It will also speed up response times, stop more damage, and enable the transmission of crucial information about the features of the fire scene to inaccessible locations. For the benefit of firemen, a camera with night vision has been added inside the UAV. A controller for the UAV features a 2.4 GHz radio.
