Video-based fire and smoke detection

August 2019 Fire & Safety

Artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning analytics is the ‘next big thing’ in the security industry. AxxonSoft has developed an early fire notification system based on intelligent video technology, and has announced that it has successfully passed comprehensive testing.

Miloshevichi forestry station in Belarus, in Eastern Europe, is the first site where this new system is deployed. Based on the Axxon Intellect PSIM platform with smoke detectors, powered by deep learning, the sample system included three PTZ video/thermal combinations located on 35-metre-high lookout towers.

The cameras automatically pan 360 degrees to scan the forest for rising smoke. The neural network was specifically trained in similar environments to distinguish smoke from clouds, fog and dust. The detection distance ranges up to 50 km in clear weather.

Video and thermal images are displayed on the operator’s monitor along with an interactive map where current camera FoVs (field of view) are indicated. Upon detection of smoke, an alarm sounds while a set of targeted emails containing a map screenshot and the alarm image are sent. A hot spot can be localised with an accuracy of several hundred metres, which

is more than satisfactory regarding the scope of forest lands.The customer’s strategy is to expand the solution over the national forestry service.
