The concept of Fireguard, a firefighter robot, was conceived by a German designer.
Fireguard is not going to replace humans by extinguishing fires, but it will check out places where fires are.
Equipped with a video camera on its head, it is controlled at a distance by firefighters who can assess the situation. It’s the same principle as the robots that defuse bombs.
Its special wheels and rotatable body means this robot can work on practically any terrain.
Fireguard looks like a scorpion, don’t you think?
