Abstract : Background/Objectives: In this paper a prototype of Fire Fighting Robot (FFR) using LEGO Mindstorm is proposed for disaster management, which has the functionality of quick movement inside a building, detecting obstacles and locating the fire on its way. Simulation of the prototype is accomplished by two modulus Fire detection and message alert. FFR uses the ultrasonic sensor to move around the obstacles and light sensor to find out the fire origin. When the fire is detected it will send messages alert to the people in, building regarding fire disaster and extinguish the fire. Simulation of the robot is tested under various scenarios with different test cases and the result is discussed in result and analysis. Conclusion/Application:The simulation designed is proved to safeguard the human life and property from the fire accident. FFR can be considered as the useful simulation for the real time application. © Research India Publications.
