FireDrone – Unmanned Aerial Vehicle for Extreme Temperature Environments

So i’m david hoiz­er­man i’m work­ing at the empire robot­ics cen­ter today we have been test­ing our drone for extreme tem­per­a­ture envi­ron­ments here at the fire­fight­er train­ing facil­i­ty in andelfin­gen and.

Instead of always test­ing it at the in an oven at empire in a lab­o­ra­to­ry envi­ron­ment we could fly today in a real world fire sce­nario and behind me you can see the drone it sur­vived more than four test flights today so we’re very.

Hap­py with that and we could gath­er a lot of data to be ana­lyzed in after this test the main chal­lenge for this drone is the elec­tron­ics as well as the bat­ter­ies are not suit­ed for extreme tem­per­a­ture appli­ca­tions so we solve this chal­lenge with using.

Poly­mate aero­gel insu­la­tion hull around the elec­tron­ics com­part­ment so in here is the elec­tron­ics and we have this shell around it and with this solu­tion we can fly in high tem­per­a­tures but also in very cold tem­per­a­tures.
