  • Original Article – Naval-Technology.com Researchers from the Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) Robotics Institute and Sensible Machines have developed a new small quadrotor designed for fire-fighting inside navy ships. During a demonstration on a decommissioned US Navy vessel, the micro-flyer autonomously flew through dark, smoke-filled compartments to detect fires and trace victims. The drone has been built for deployment by the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) as part of the damage control technologies for the 21st century (DC-21) project. Using the RGB-D camera, or depth camera as a primary sensor to create a map of fire areas, the micro-flyer can […]
