A firefighting ROBOT named Colossus helped 400 firefighters battle the Notre Dame blaze from inside


 

An unmanned robot helped save Notre Dame from complete destruction 

When a fire threatened to subsume the cathedral, Colossus was sent in

The robot was 1,100 pounds and can carry equipment, spray water, and survey 

Colossus reduced the need for firefighters to fight the fire internally 


     


 

노트르담 대성당 화재 현장에 뛰어든 재난 로봇 '콜로수스'


   500kg 짜리 이 긴급 재난 로봇은 노트르담 대성당에서 불이 났을 때 인류 역사 유산의 한 조각을 구하는 것을 도왔다. 


호스와 카메라를 장착한 원격 조종 드론인 콜로수스로 불리는 이 가공할 장치는 성당 안으로 굴러들어와 건물의 오래된 목조 지붕을 통해 타오르는 불씨 퇴치를 도울 수 있었다. 


내화성, 방수성, 최대 544kg의 무게를 실을 수 있는 콜로수스는 구조물을 완전히 태우기 전에 화재 진압에 도움이 되었을 뿐만 아니라 추락하는 파편 때문에 위험에 처할 수 있는 교회로 소방관들이 들어갈 필요성도 줄였다.


보도에 따르면, 그 당시 성당은 완전히 불에 타버리는 데 불과 15분에서 30분 정도 밖에 걸리지 않았다고 한다

An 1,100-pound emergency robot helped to save a piece of human history during a blaze at Paris' Notre Dame cathedral that threatened to burn the historic monument to the ground.  


The formidable device, dubbed Colossus, a remote-controlled drone equipped with hoses and cameras, was able to roll its way into the cathedral to help fight the fire -- which burned through the structure's old wooden roof -- from within. 


Colossus, which is both fire-resistant, water-proof, and capable of carrying up to 1,200 pounds not only helped to stop the fire before it completely razed the structure, but reduced the need for fire fighters to enter the church where they would be in danger from falling debris.


At the time, the cathedral was only 15 to 30 minutes away from being completely burned to the ground, reports say.
