Risks reduction

SENTINEL strengthens the safety of fire-fighters
during operations with distant engagement
(fire-fighting with a remotely-operated monitor)

Logistical support

SENTINEL helps fire-fighters with
physically demanding & repeated tasks 
(transportation of heavy rescue equipment, traction of a vehicle, pushing of heavy loads)

Help with the planning of operations

Like a scout, SENTINEL can assess risks by gathering information on inaccessible and dangerous areas through the use of cameras and sensors.

Victim assistance

SENTINEL supports fire-fighters by facilitating casualty evacuation (transportation of victims on a stretcher at the back of SENTINEL, first aid assistance with oxygen bottles, etc.)

firemen’s need to have the utmost confidence in the equipment they use.

Control system

  • SENTINEL can be controlled from :
  • a remote control with joystick
  • a rugged tablet
  • a smartphone
  • a computer
  • The different controls enable :
  • the piloting of the water cannon
  • the piloting of the winch
  • the piloting of the thermal camera turret
  • the switching on and off of the LED projectors
  •      and position lamps
  • the switching on and off of the siren
  • the activation of the emergency stop button
  • The piloting interface gives in real-time the following information :
  • the battery level of the robot
  • the battery level of the remote
  • the state of the robot (connected / disconnected)
  • the ambient temperature
  • the engines' temperature
  • the robot's instantaneous power
  • telemetry information
  •      (if the robot is equipped with sensors)
  • warning message (to report a problem to the operator)
  • video feed

Use cases

Fire-fighting

SENTINEL is acclaimed for underground fires
(tunnels, parkings) and fires with risks of explosion (industrial site, warehouses, refineries).
SENTINEL is able to protect itself with a water mist.

Casualty evacuation

Equipped with a stretcher support frame,
SENTINEL can helps fire-fighters evacuating
the injured by transporting them on its back.

Heavy load transportation

On its back, SENTINEL can receive a toolbox, straps or support frames allowing the transport of heavy equipment from one point to another, inaccessible by traditional diesel vehicles (ex. : oxygen bottles, specific emergency equipment, water hose, …).

Taking measurements

Equipped with various sensors (day / night cameras, thermal cameras, thermometer, etc.), SENTINEL can be sent in a disaster area to retrieve data and send it back to the remote operators. This helps emergency services getting a real insight into a disaster scene.
