Fire news is now very common to all. The fire is terrifying around the world. Many people died and damages happened in the horrible fire. Due to carelessness, we have to face the danger any time. So we should be careful to avoid fire. However, a robot was built to deal if the fire breaks out. 

Students of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Osmangazi University in Turkey have developed a robot capable of dousing the fire. The robot has a fire-sensitive system. As a result, it can detect fire from any building. It is possible to run the robot- automatically and remotely. 

University Professor Fuad Barsaglia said, “The robot has some human characteristics. As a result, it can work in parallel with people during the fire. The students made this robot only in three months.”    

“The robot can road around the entire area. If a fire breaks out and people trapped in this, then the robot can find those people. Thus, this will reduce the financial loss and decrease casualties,” said Gokhan Ayaz, a representative of the student group.
