An engineering group from Aalborg University is ready to launch innovative and sustainable drone software to fight wildfires!
It all started with a willingness to make a difference for the environment and to influence the current climate change in a positive way.
This happened at the same time as the increase of wildfires around the world, which resulted in four engineers from Aalborg University, specializing in robotics and artificial intelligence, deciding to develop a solution to combat the international wildfires.
That was the early start for the innovative software company Robotto, which today is ready to launch its new product, that has the potential to save both lives and nature.
AWRA, their Autonomous Wildfire Recognition and Analytics, is an autonomous drone system for combating forest fires which can help give communities and firefighters a sense of security again.
Wildfires are usually measured manually using aircrafts, helicopters, and satellites.
The process of collecting data for wildfires, Robotto has made it faster, more accurate and efficient.
AWRA collects and processes data of the wildfires, which are subsequently transferred autonomously onto a map with both optical and thermal images of the given affected areas.
AWRA provides a quick overview of the location, direction and spread of the fires.
It enables firefighters to have a better fighting chance against these fires, by giving them data when and where they need it, and gaining situational awareness to operate in the most efficient way.
The creators behind Robotto and the new award-winning firefighting software AWRA are very optimistic and excited about future developments in firefighting optimization of forest areas, worldwide.
There is a great international interest for this unique product for combating wildfires, and the company has most recently been to Barcelona, visiting GRAF Firefighters to test and optimize AWRA during a controlled fire of forest area.
The potential is great, and the time has come to fight wildfires worldwide in the most effective and simple way possible!
