Due to climate change, the fire season now extends out of the typically dry months. As seen in Europe where the fire season was from July to September, but now extends into both June and October. The total burned forestall area has also increased in Europe, with fires in 2019 burning an area 15% larger than the 2008-2018 average. The world is now experiencing the phenomena of “mega fires”. These fires “ignite and propagate in very severe weather conditions, which often makes them extraordinary due to their size, intensity and deep long-lasting social, economic and environmental impact.” – Directorate-General for Research and Innovation, European Commission.
We at Robotto are determined to make the world ever increasingly sustainable, and we are starting this transition by tackling one of the worlds most deadliest, pollutive and costly symptoms of global warming.
Our vision does not stop at wildfires. We want to implement robotic technologies into every field where we can help facilitate the green transition, or help reduce the environmental impact. We are currently abiding SDG target 11, 13 and 15, including 5 sub-targets, but we want to extend this list to include every category.
