Project Description

The purpose of the project was to create an integrated system for the prevention, confrontation and control of forest fires. The system relies on the use of moving outdoor cameras. Using specialized software and algorithms, EPi Systems, in collaboration with InfoDem Geographic Information Systems, has installed fire-protection and fire-&-smoke-alarms systems, in Western Attica, Thesprotia, Arta and Chania counties. The system is capable of detecting traces of smoke and triggering visual and audible alarm. In addition, it rotates the camera detecting the signal to position, in the center of the image, the possible outbreak, which is also displayed on the relative screen. The data is transmitted from the cameras to the management center of each prefecture via a 5.4GHz wireless network. The power supply of the system is achieved by the use of photovoltaic systems.
