The FireHelper system
When the fire breaks out the losses are unbelievably great ( human lives, trees, whole forests, cities). We have created an application to help people close to fire and firefighters. Our system will help people to escape from dangerous area, organize evacuation and quickly alert firefighters.
Faster fire alarms allow firefighters to react more quickly, resulting in putting out the fire earlier and lower consumption of raw materials needed for action.
Do you know how much time it takes to notify the fire brigade about a fire?
We also do not know. However, we know that it certainly does not take a few seconds.
Our system needs several seconds to handle 5 requests. We checked it on our prototype.
Our system analyses satellite data and combines it with geospatial and topographical data to provide the best escape path right to the mobile application, additionally passing the location data from clients to firefighters to facilitate the rescue mission.
We are detecting a fire using thermal maps from the satellite. The user can also announce a fire (In future we are doing that). Then the user's fire is reviewed for the last photo from the satellite. We believe that in the near future such photos will be available with little breaks to improve the system.
OUR PROTOTYPE, we have created during the hackathon.
This solution can save many lives! We believe it will become default feature of each system.
