Reading Time: < 1 minute

This video demonstrates the FAROS (Fireproof Aerial RObot System) for fire disaster. The drone can climb the wall to pass through narrow and smoky area. It has a 2D-LiDAR sensor for self-localization. Its pose estimation result is visualized on V-REP simulator.

The drone also has fire-proof function as shown on the video. It can endure fire over 1,000˚C.
