With the development in the field of robotics, human intrusion has become less and robots are being widely used for safety purpose. In our day-to-day lives, fire accidents have become common and sometimes may lead to hazards that make it hard for the firemen to protect human life. In such cases, a fire fighting robot is used to guard human lives, wealthand surroundings from the fire accidents. Here we implement two modes of robotic operations- Manual mode & Automatic mode.In the Manual mode, PHP webpage is used to control the robotic vehicle. In Automatic mode, the robot takes controls by itself based on the user predefined command. To detect fire we use OpenCV for image processing. Standard colors of fire are defined by upper and lower boundaries of HSV color spaces of red, orange and yellow.The water spraying mechanism is completely automatic to both the modes. In the PHP webpage we have a control to switch between manualand automatic modes based on our choice.
