According to statistics from the U.S. Fire Administration and the UCS, a growing trend of fire-related death rates and economic losses. The growth in population can compromise the efficiency of fire rescue in the future. This auto-deployable drone is aimed to maximize fire-rescue efficiency and eliminate false alarms by executing 4 functions: detecting the fire situation, reporting the fire situation and presence of human in danger, directing the evacuation process and extinguishing the fire. It can be deployed from both interior spaces or fire trucks.
