ABOUT OUR ROBOT
Micro Fire X is a robot, built by 6 engineers, that can autonomously find a flame and put it out using only 100 milliliters of water. Advanced sensor technology enables it to distinguish between a flame and an LED, preventing it from accidentally spraying a decoy. This robot uses proportional and integral control along with 5 distance sensors for accurate navigation and object avoidance. Utilizing encoder feedback, it is able to make precise turns and to reach and stay at its desired velocity.
The Micro Fire X robot can drive at a speed of 400 encoder ticks per second, which is almost 1 revolution per second.
Object Avoidance capabilities
Utilizes 5 IR distance sensors to aid in object avoidance
Battery typically takes less than 5 minutes to recharge.
EFFICIENT WATER USAGE
This robot can put out a candle flame with only 100mL of water.
