    The robot and the android application are connected using Bluetooth. In the application there is Bluetooth connectivity option and in the robot it is bluetooth module which allows the robot to work.



A cell phone controlled robot with fire detection and fire fighting capabilities can be a very useful tool for both personal and commercial applications. Here is a basic working principle of how such a robot could operate:

Cell phone control: The robot can be controlled using a mobile app or a web-based interface. The user can remotely control the robot's movements and actions from their smartphone or computer.

Fire detection: The robot can be equipped with sensors such as temperature and smoke detectors to detect fires in the surrounding environment. These sensors can be used to identify the location and intensity of the fire.

Fire fighting: The robot can be equipped with a water tank and a spray nozzle that can be used to

extinguish the fire. The robot can also be fitted with a fan that can be used to blow out the fire, depending on the situation.

Navigation: The robot can use its sensors and mapping technology to navigate through the environment and locate the fire.

Alerts: The robot can send alerts to the user's cell phone if it detects a fire, and provide real-time updates on the status of the fire.

Overall, a cell phone controlled robot with fire detection and fire fighting capabilities can be a very valuable tool for protecting homes and businesses from fires. It can provide anearly warning system for detecting fires, and can be used to quickly extinguish the flames before they can cause serious damage.
