dc.description.abstract In this Thesis a fire robot was designed. The goal was to create a system which was able to extinguish a fire, but it had to be attached to the ceiling. The first task was to consider an environment and to define qualitative requirements, obstacles and challenges affecting the robot. A cinema was chosen. The main challenges were: how the navigation of the robot could be, how many and what kind of sensors would be needed and how a fire fighting system could be created. Later, new functions were added. The robot would send information and pictures about the situation inside the building to a fire station. When the robot detected a fire, it would send the report and it would also start to beep. With these tools, people and the fire brigade would be warned. Another interesting function was considered. The firemen could control the robot and take pictures from outside the building. More guesswork could be taken out of fire fighting. Finally, possible materials, possibilities of communication, different power systems and safety measures were studied.
