Forest Fire Detection Using Temperature Sensors?Check Out How!
Forest fire also known as bush fire or hill fire is an uncontrolled fire occurring wild or forest areas. It is very important to detect these kinds of fires as early as possible so as to prevent damage from it to the ecological system. The latest advancements in this field are the temperature sensors
Working of Sensors:
The Basic observation during the forest fire is that the ?Temperature of the environment goes very high and deviates more from the normal temperature readings?.
This criterion boost?s up the probability of finding the forest fire using temperature sensors.
Since during the forest fire, the surrounding temperature goes high the value/ output from the TSS arrangement deviates more from the initial and basic reading. Then at the time interval ?X+nth?, the temperature will be ?T+N? (N-increased value).
Since this is a ?continuous monitoring system?, the increased temperature is detected at monitoring systems of the ground station. The circuitry triggers the GPS module to send the coordinates to the satellite and then satellite transmits these co-ordinates as data to the ground station where it is decoded to know where exactly the forest fire has occurred.
Benefits Of Having Temperature Sensors:
The arrangement is fire-proof and can withstand high temperatures, rugged, reliable, cost-effective, and easy to install
