See what the TAF sees
Operators of the firefighting robot TAF need accurate information about navigating through the environment, to detect hazards and locate hot spots. The camera kit allows operators to see exactly what the turbine sees in real time and then react accordingly. In this way, the tracked vehicle can be steered much more effectively to the source of the fire and therefore facilitate targeted firefighting from a safe distance.
• The camera kit consists of 4 regular video cameras (front and rear view) + 1 thermal imaging camera.
• 4 high gain directional antennas ensure proper communication.
The cameras are mounted on the front and rear of the turbine and tracked vehicle, providing you with an excellent all-around view. With the help of the thermal imaging camera, you can identify the “hot spots”, steer the firefighting robot directly to the fire source and then fight the fire.
This camera kit got developed for use in especially harsh environments. The thermal imaging camera works well also in heavy smoke conditions, while night-time vision is ensured by the “night mode” function.
The images produced by the cameras are displayed on a tablet, which is mounted on the remote control of the tracked vehicle. A split screen reproduces the images of the 5 cameras, full-screen images can be obtained by clicking on the image required. Moreover, the operator can easily switch back and forth between the full-screen images of the various cameras. The data, produced by the cameras, can also be received on other devices, such as a Smartphone, by simply installing the appropriate software and remaining within range of the tracked vehicle (300m). It is also possible to switch from WLAN to LTE (SIM-card required) at any time, according to the signal quality.
