The Thermite Robot includes two waterspouts; the bigger one can be used to spray water liberally over a burning item, and the smaller spout can spray water more precisely. It can constantly operate on diesel for 20 hours without needing to be refilled. Up to 300 metres away, it may be operated using a remote.

Moreover, up to 1.5 tonnes of impediments may be pushed aside by a specialised arm in front of the robot. Up to 4 tonnes of objects may be removed from a fire scene using the robot’s retractable wire hook at the rear. The bigger water spout has a huge exhaust fan at the rear that you can use to vent smoke.

The main advantage of employing this robot is that you can replace it even if it is damaged in a fire. In addition, the robot’s 2,500 gallons per minute water pump spout will be very useful for putting out flames in high-risk regions.

This robot will help put out the fire and clean up the tunnel simultaneously. The robot also has cameras, a temperature sensor, and wheels that enable it to cross uneven ground, including railroad lines.

The GITEX 3.0 edition has seven tech-related themes, including two brand-new ones, Global DevSlam and X-Verse, as well as North Star Dubai start-ups, AI Everything, Future Blockchain Summit in partnership with VARA, Fintech Surge and Marketing Mania.
