In recent year fire accidents increased rapidly. Firefighting and rescue, is very dangers for firefighters engaged in the field. So robots intended for firefighting have been introduced. However, Robots mobility is limited so it is difficult for them to directly approach fire sources. Here we proposed a solution by designing an autonomous firefighting robot with help of Lidar technology. Lidar can map surrounding environment and create a map of the locality using this pre-map robot can navigate the area by comparing current input from the Lidar. Here each node can be considered as a location point and every building is embedded with number of sensors for fire detection if fire is detected this information is sent to robot. Robot then activates and finds the location by itself and navigate to this location to extinguish fire. The robot-using camera also does fire detection tracking autonomously and water is sprinkled until fire is extinguished.
