Fireproof Aerial Robot System (FAROS) From Korea

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.

This research was supported by KIDS (KAIST Institute for Disaster Studies) at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST).
