Advanced Fire Fighting Technology to Save Lives During Fire Spreads

Scottish researchers remarked that by predicting the chances of a fire progress and foretelling about its spreading in office or a home will aid the protection of crews and help saving lives.

Scientists at the University of Edinburgh have developed a new way to log the information obtained from sensors installed in burning buildings, into the computer systems to generate live predications of the process of spreading a fire.

The sensors that have been integrated into CCTV cameras, smoke alarms or room temperature devices are capable of monitoring the thermal conditions and height of a fire, and hi-tech computer systems will transform these data for predicting the status of fire. The Sensor Assisted Fire Fighting technology facilitates live inspection of a fire, with the prediction being continuously upgraded employing the data obtained from the sensing devices. During vital variations in conditions like roof distortions or window breaking, the sensor readings allow the computational system to acclimatize to the forecast.

Guillermo Rein of the School of Engineering at the university stated that the firefighters usually obey their instincts during fire process and this technology will provide additional data for handling emergency situations, and lower the issues associated with it, thus saving lives and reducing damage.
