IoT-based smart forest firefighting

Issue 1 2022 News

The plenary session of ITU-T Study Group 20 was held online recently, with representatives from 40 countries attending the meeting. In the meeting, the draft recommendation ‘Requirements and reference functional model of IoT-based smart forest firefighting system’ (work item: Y.IoT-SFFS) led by Dahua Technology, was given consent for a final review process leading to approval. It’s revealed on International Telecommunication Union (ITU) work programme page that the recommendation will go through the traditional approval process (TAP), since it has regulatory implications.

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the United Nations’ specialised agency for information and communication technologies. It was founded in 1865 as the earliest international standardisation organisation and one of the three most authoritative and influential international standardisation organisations in the world. It aims to shape the future of ICT and connect the world with 193 Member States as well as some 900 companies, universities and international and regional organisations.

In the context of the global digital economy, forestry is facing challenges such as digital transformation, improvement of fire prevention efficiency and enhancement of safety in firefighting. This recommendation will provide a solid reference for smart forest firefighting systems and will effectively promote the efficiency of forest fire prevention and firefighting globally.

The Y.IoT-SFFS Recommendation led by Dahua used the Internet-of-Things, video AI, UAV, 3S (remote sensing technology, geographic information system, global positioning system), integrated communication and other technologies to build a full-dimensional intelligent monitoring system. It provides comprehensive technical support for improving emergency response capabilities and forest fire detection, early warning, firefighting and assessment. The recommendation will provide a scientific, reasonable and intelligent scheme for constructing the forest fire prevention and control system, to protect forestry resources all over the world and achieve the global goal of carbon neutral.
