Infrared Wireless Network Sensors for Imminent Forest Fire Detection
This paper presents an automatic forest fire surveillance ground system applied to early fire detection. Sensor wireless network scheme allows not only supervising remotely wide-forest area, but also to detect immediately any fire threat. A real system for forest fire detection in actual operation is presented. The system is based on advanced thermal image processing techniques with the purpose of determining the presence of fire. The projected system performs the fusion of different detectors, which exploit different expected characteristics of a real fire, like persistence and increase in time.
