The ASFINAG is obliged to carry out regular training sessions with fire brigades in all Austrian motorway tunnels. In particular, fire simulations are very time-consuming and difficult to implement, since in tunnels no open fire may be used. It can therefore neither be determined whether the fire is actually extinguished and if the amount of water supplied to the fire suffice to extinguish it.
The development of a portable and smart fire simulator in the form of a car allows to carry out a fire excercise without open fire and pyrotechnics. This not only allows a wider range of training scenarios, but also a more realistic implementation, so that firefighters are well prepared for emergencies.
Due to the special and modular design as well as the smart programming, a variety of scenarios can be presented (e.g., engine fires or full fires). The fire simulator has the necessary logic to compare the incoming water volumes with reference values and automatically regulate the brightness of the light sources. With a web app developed by us, the exercise can be evaluated and controlled in real time.
