An entire team of fire-fighting robots was recently unveiled by defense contractor QinetiQ at a demonstration in London, where a quartet of robots were more than battle-ready to tackle the particular risk of fires involving cylinders of the industrial gas acetylene. These robots are not the same, as each of them have various functions but work as a unit in order to be successful, pretty much like how us humans function. The robots will comprise of a nimble, stair-climbing reconnaissance unit all the way to a diesel-powered robot with a large claw. It would be interesting to see how these robots perform in actual situations, but anything that helps prevent the death of brave firefighters without compromising on the safety of people trapped in dangerous situations would definitely win points in our books.
