I am working on proposal of autonomous fire fight robots but I'm little bit confused about its sensor and algorithms. My friend suggested there are some path finding
AI algorithms like
Dijkstra's Algorithm which are used in robots, but I didn't believe it.
I want to ask: Are these algorithms used in real world robots or some other genetic algorithms? How does a robot discover path to detect, and differentiate, a human from fire? I only want some explanation that gives knowledge.
