The Challenge | And YOU can Help Fight Fires!

Build a fire-monitoring and crowdsourcing tool that will allow local fire managers to respond to wildfires.

Local fire detection

The system of detection of forest fires in a certain area. It includes a network of sensors, information received from NASA satellites and data about current fires obtained, from people. Based on this data, a safe path is formed to exit the fires.


Annually in the world there are more than 7 million fires, in which about 85 thousand people die. The most destructive are forest fires. They spread quickly and are absolutely uncontrollable. Even a small fire can develop into a natural disaster.

To detect and prevent fires, you need to receive and analyze data in real time. The data obtained with the help of NASA satellites on the basis of which the general picture of the world fires is being compiled is not updated often enough.
To solve the problem, a hardware-software solution using web services is offered that could provide real-time data on temperature, humidity and also the level of smoke in the air in the local area from the sensors that are placed on it. Data is sent to the hub, which in turn redirects them to the server for later display on the site to the client. On the site the user is available all information from the sensors, as well as weather data from external sources. In consequence of the analysis of the obtained data, a conclusion is drawn about the state of the system. Also, the functionality of the system includes the ability to take into account the fire data. They can be sent by anyone who has access to a mobile application that is designed.
