Forest Guard is an intelligent, unmanned forest-fire-fighting system. It cruises and monitors forests continuously for up to a month. When it finds a forest fire, it immediately and autonomously extinguishes it. The device is equipped with cameras and sensors to detect the fire. When one is found, it will fly closer and release drones to check it. Then it will assess the situation and start processing. It will release fire-extinguishing bombs with the assistance of drones. After the fire is extinguished, it will monitor the spot for 24 hours to prevent the fire from reviving.
