    Describes the current status of the UK's Security and Fire Fighting Advanced Robot (SAFFAR) project within the International Advanced Robotic Programme (IARP). In the UK the majority of nondomestic fire losses are as a result of arson. The SAFFAR robot is intended as a relatively low cost high performance device which will act as a powerful deterrent to unauthorised intrusion into a premises by ma... View full abstract»
