Notre-Dame: How drones and a robot called Colossus helped prevent worse damage

Around 500 firefighters made their way to the 850-year-old Gothic structure when the alarm sounded at around 6.30 p.m. local time, but when they arrived, the enormity of the challenge that confronted them was immediately apparent.

To aid them in their heroic efforts to contain the flames, the fire department deployed a number of technologies, among them drones and a firefighting robot called Colossus.

The camera-equipped drones, a DJI Mavic Pro and Matrice M210, provided the team on the ground with invaluable close-up and real-time aerial data about the intensity of the fire, its position, and how the fire was spreading. Thermal imaging cameras, would allow operators to see through the billowing smoke and identify hotspots, too.
