AI Vision Technology for Heat Source Detection to Enhance the Effectiveness of Automated Hill Fire Surveillance
Wildfires in Hong Kong are mostly caused by human activities, such as the careless use of joss sticks and papers during Ching Ming Festival. LSCM has therefore developed this technology to introduce an effective approach for detecting hill fires at an early stage, minimising the risks and threats to human life and city facilities. A unique fusion of AI, video analytics and robotic technologies is deployed for automated wildfire detection in one of the fire lookout facilities in Hong Kong.
This solution has won a Bronze Medal in the 48th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
