The Hot Spot (T.H.S)

The Hot Spot (T.H.S) is a fire safety robot with sophisticated radio controls designed to effectively assist in fire suppression and safety. This robot can be controlled from outside a dangerous fire area keeping the operator out of harms way. It can be used in structural fires or wild land fires making it a unique piece of fire equipment. One of The Hot Spot's unique features is it's track system. The track system makes it able to maneuver over or around most obstacles. There are many other features on board T.H.S. such as a thermal imaging camera mounted to the front so hot spots or other potential dangers can be detected. There's also hand tools such as a fire extinguisher and fireman ax mounted to The Hot Spot for quick easy access. T.H.S comes equipped with flashing LED lights for easy visual location of safety zone and retreat points. Also on board the T.H.S. is a 3 hour supply of quick link oxygen or Co2 canister sawp outs. T.H.S. has a built in water safety nozzle known as the umbrella. The umbrella water nozzle shoots a steady flow of water in an upward motion creating a fanning umbrella effect cooling and soaking anything within or up to a 15 foot radius pending on the water pressure. T.H.S. creates an ideal safety zone for Firefighter's because of it's features and capability. T.H.S fire safety robots advanced technology and it's universal fire applications make it the robot of the future. I thought of this idea to help make a Firefighter's job easier and safer.

How Math & Science Can Help Power My Idea

I chose Robotics because The Hot Spot is a robot that helps Firefighters. Engineering will be used to help create and design this unique robot.

    Mike N. (USDA) Great idea! I really like the CO2 part. Our tanks only hold approx. 45 minutes of air so having extra air available for emergency situations could potentially be life saving! April 02, 2012

    Great idea! ...to protect emergency responders. You might want to think about a more complex tread like a moon lander as it will encounter many obstacles to its progress. Also chemical & high temps magnesium fire April 02, 2012

    Number Six Justin, this invention is meant to go inside a burning building to protect Firefighters. The equipment attached is to help Firefighters to have easy & quick access. Thanks everyone for your support! March 31, 2012

    Justin Canna You may also want to create a robot that can go into the burning building. A robot that will be able to utilize the equipment rather than just have it attached may be very helpful in the future. March 30, 2012
