Fire fighters enter buildings or sites with incomplete or partial information about the types of materials, components, and chemicals involved in a given fire incident. While they wear protective clothing and gear to counteract this, understanding what chemicals and components are involved is instrumental to fire, police, and nearby residents, among others.
Goals and Objectives
Better situational awareness, minimization of personal injury, and damage to property and infrastructure
IoT sensors, analytics, robotics, and cloud
Use Case Summary
IoT-enabled sensors can provide critical information about the harmful chemical components involved in fires as well as heat levels and prediction of fire patterns; this helps mitigate damage to citizens, officers, and fire fighters. Robotics are being leveraged as conduits for sensors.
