Applications in Fire Services
This chapter is a summary of a paper  published and re-printed in 1994. It starts with the drawbacks of conventional fire detection systems. Techniques of computer vision are employed to remove the drawbacks and at the same time increase the reliability and response rate of the systems. For security and low level fire detection, a fuzzy logic based image comparison algorithm is deemed adequate. In order to confirm the existence of fire or smoke, techniques related to optical flow are employed as high level fire or smoke detection, which generate a velocity field for the image so that the decision can be judged by using fuzzy logic.
