CITRIS Seed Award given for wildfire detection research

Squishy Robotics sensor robot deployed to gather data and perform tests during wildfire training for firefighters in June 2022.
Dr. Alice Agogino, Squishy Robotics CEO and a UC Berkeley professor, and Dr. Becca Fenwick of UC Santa Cruz were joint recipients of one of the 2022 CITRIS Seed Awards. Their proposal, “Human-Drone-Robot Teaming for Wildfire Detection: Technology and Workforce Development,” focuses on better detection and prediction of wildfire events while also empowering fire professionals to leverage emerging technologies.

The CITRIS Seed Awards are granted by the
Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society and the Banatao Institute (CITRIS) at the University of California (UC) to seed high-impact research. The eight selected proposals were submitted by multicampus teams from Berkeley, Davis, Merced, and Santa Cruz.
The year-long research work will leverage artificial intelligent (A.I.) software that has been trained on environmental, satellite, and weather data to identify high-risk areas where fires are likely to occur. Squishy Robotics drone-deployable sensor robots will then be sent to these identified areas to perform remote and persistent monitoring as well as wildfire data collection. This award will also fund the development of innovative workshop-based training for emergency responders using emerging technologies, specifically drone-robot teaming.
