Fire Monitoring and Extinguishing Algorithm using Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Buildings may be subjected to natural hazards such as earthquakes, winds and fires during their long-term use. Fire is a very common hazard and could be monitored and prevented using Wireless Sensor and Actor Networks (WSANs). WSANs refer to a group of sensors and actors linked by wireless medium to perform distributed sensing and actuation tasks. In such a network, sensors gather information about the physical world, while actors take decisions and then perform appropriate actions upon the environment, which allows remote, automated interaction with the environment. In this paper, a routing Algorithm for Fire Monitoring and Extinguishing(FMEA) is proposed that makes use of the threshold sensing for monitoring and extinguishing fire.
