Robots To Join London Fire Brigade

FireRobots1HRThe defense and security company QintetiQ has developed a range of firefighting robots.  It has been testing them in England.

Last week one of the robots was taken to a live incident at Membury Airfield to assess a situation involving gas canisters.  The firefighting robots will be particularly useful in potentially explosive situations.

A two year contract is being made between QinetiQ and the London Fire Brigade.

I wonder if the QinetiQ robots will be at all like the firefighting bots from Segway?
