High-rise fires pose particular risks for firefighters — accessibility is often limited meaning assessment is difficult, and the dense nature of urban spaces make them hard to contain. We have already seen a fleet of jetpacks attempt to tackle this problem. Now, researchers at Kaist in South Korea have developed fireproof drones, called FAROS, which could help do the job. FAROS, short for fireproof aerial robot system, can detect fires, navigate the building and transfer vital images and data to firefighters remotely, providing them with potentially life-saving information before they enter the building. The drone can both fly and climb…
