Senhive – Forest Fire Detection
Wildfires are responsible for a huge amount of global CO2 emissions. Thousands of human, plant and animal lives and destroyed millions acres of land are lost every year, and with climate change in full effect, this will only increase. Regardless of the causes, when a forest catches fire, the fire can spread and reach speeds of up to 23 km/h destroying everything in its path within a few hours.Early detection of wildfire is key. The faster a wildfire is detected, the faster fire departments can intervene to minimize the damage.
Robovision, together with Senhive, has developed a wildfire detection system using cameras on drones. Through automatic image analysis, fires can be detected earlier and lives can be saved
