Detection of Human Existence Using Thermal Imaging for Automated Fire Extinguisher
Fire disaster is a common threat to lives and properties. Rescuing people caught in fire accidents is important as fire can expand rapidly and result in a tremendous loss of life and property. If the extinguishers are used under the presence of human, it will cause serious health issues and can also be fatal. In our proposal system we use a thermal camera to detect the existence of human inside a fire struck building. The thermal signatures obtained from camera helps to detect the number of people trapped inside. The controller thus checks for presence of humans using camera and takes the required action.
