Okay one at a time. obviously i understand where your coming from, so know hard feelings.
As a side point i am 17, 18 this year, i suppose still a little young maybe, but i dont believe that matters really, if the designs, presentations are
good and plausible it doesnt matter, where is my age displayed so i can change it? cheers
firstly the ERA inferno is only one design out of many.
the heat sensor is not directly for use in "raging fire" situations. remember the fire service conducts many types of rescue, not just from fires, i
am merely covering all the possible variables. who knows what could happen, who knows what kind of situation you could be presented with. (warehouse
with flammable containers, that could explode???)
again, as stated above the motion sensor detects movement and locks onto moving targets - if it locks onto something else accidently one touch of the
screen, a submenu appears, two options will appear, YES, or UNLOCK.
thirdly there must have been a misconception on my part, it isnt the size of a double decker bus, rather more....a tall hummer? maybe a little
skinnier though...to be honest i havent worked out the exact perameters of the vehicle yet as that is the manufacturing phase, as it is only in
pre-production at the moment.
Another side point it doesnt need
to be bullet proof, and probably won't be, due to costing, it is to an option i am exploring, perhaps for a
"terrorist situation model", who knows what will happen in the future, perhaps it will have to be bazuka proof.
but lets get back to the point.
And finally your concern about resources and man power. I am taking all of what you have said into account before i present it to a company. i am not
actually asking for a loan I am trying to go into partnership with a successful company, who have the resources and man power to produce these
machines. as for the programming it as complicated as you make it out to be,
All it would take is to employ a computer programmer to write a new piece of software for all the calibration of the cameras, sensors to cannons etc.
fairly straight forward.
I estimate the whole thing to cost less than a fire engine!
I hope all this helps to clarify, also i'll post the designs for the viewscreen and the ERA - Inferno if you want.
