Firefighting hasn't changed much in respect to having humans going in and doing the dirty work until now with the 'TAF20' Remote Control Robot, which is developed to help fight fires from afar.
Capable operating up to 500-meters away from the danger, the 'TAF20' Remote Control Robot is the work of the Emergency Services and Fire & Rescue department in New South Wales in Australia who developed the device to help fight forest fires and the like in a safer, more efficient way. The 'TAF20' Remote Control Robot shoots water up to 90-meters and features high-powered fans for clearing smoke from inside dwellings.
Able to reach heights far higher than the traditional firefighter can reach, the 'TAF20' Remote Control Robot is surely a new wave of firefighting technology that will pave the way for the future.
