The fire fighting is a risky work where the fire fighters need to face the fire hazards to save life and properties.

Fire fighting vehicle is being used to transport firefighters to the scene as well as transport the fire fighting equipment. The fire fighter is still facing the risk of fire hazard because they still need to go near to fire scene. To reduce the fire fighter risk during fire incident, a fire fighting mobile robot is designed. Fire fighting mobile robot is a remote controlled machine that replace fire fighter to perform fire fighting task. The application of fire fighting mobile robot is able to reduce the direct contact of fire fighter to the fire hazards. The paper reviews a variety of technologies and state-of-the-art technology of fire fighting mobile robot. The paper also describes the first Malaysian designed and built fire fighting mobile robot, namely, MyBOT2000.
