Automated fire-fighting robot
« on: December 09, 2010, 08:32:06 AM »
Hi,

   I am planning to do an automated fire-fighting robot for my HND project, however i cannot find a suitable sensor to detect the candles.  Basically i want the robot to work as follows; the sensor senses the candle and the robot (running on tracks like a tank) turns towards the candle and moves towards it.  As soon as the LM35s detect the set temperature, a solenoid valve is triggered and the candle is lit off.  The process is repeated for neighboring candles.  I am using 89C51AC2 micro-controller.

Any recommendations please for a fairly accurate and easy to interface sensor?

Thanks in advance
JP

Try googling "fire-fighting robot" for a projects completed and what was used for flame detection. I got 281,000 hits on this search parameter.
This is one sensor used:
