No more Fires, N+I, is the response of Aicox Soluciones to a social need to bring new technologies to the care of the Environment and collaborate with the organizations and people who protect our forests.

 

The mayor of El Molar, Yolanda Sanz, has signed a collaboration agreement with Aicox Soluciones, who has carried out a research project to develop an early fire detection system with some proofs of concept, as a “pilot experience” . The City Council of El Molar is going to implement this system in order to be able to stop them “in their first phases” and that the damage is as minor as possible, studying both the electrical network and the communications network.

Using Deep Lerning technology, an analysis of images from four orthogonally placed cameras is made to cover the entire viewing area from a specific observation point. The result of the analysis of the images allows detecting situations in which there is a fire or smoke that covers at least 6.25% of the width or height of the image, allowing fires to be detected and notified when they are not yet large and can be extinguished. before it becomes necessary to spend excessive resources.

The image analysis has been trained to differentiate smoke from clouds, making our system more robust than those on the market.

In this sense, the City Council has authorized AICOX to install in the Atalaya de El Molar the necessary equipment to compose an autonomous surveillance post for early detection of fires. This surveillance post makes it possible to detect any outbreak of fire in the area and to act as quickly as possible to prevent the spread of the fire.
