What is OIV Fire Detect AI?

Early detection of wildfires.

OIV FireDetect AI is smart and integrated system for monitoring of remote areas to detect early start of wildfires. It is intended for all professionals who protect forests and rescue people and property.

Fire Detect Overview

Combination of advanced technology and OIV’s expertise enables automatic monitoring of inaccessible, high-risk-of-wildfire areas for early start of wildfires that could otherwise become uncontrolled and destructive firestorm. Implementation of OIV FireDetect AI significantly increases safety and protects human lives and property, as well as forests. It also brings down the number of big fires, the size of burn areas, and the costs of reforestation and firefighting interventions.

How does Fire Detect AI Work?

  • Panoramic 360° cameras provide live video feed from monitored areas

  • AI-enabled software analyses camera video feeds for early signs of forest fires (smoke during day-time, fire over nights)

  • Knowledge from actual fires are used to further improve artificial intelligence algorithms

  • Operators can control cameras to perform additional checks and flag eventual false-positive detections

  • Firefighters on fireline have access to camera’s video stream and photos for updates about current wildfire situation

Key Features & Benefits

Unique solution for early detection of wildfires.

What Happens when Wildfire is Detected?

What Happens When Wildfire is Detected Schematics
What Happens When Wildfire is Detected Schematics
  • When FireDetect AI detects a wildfire, Emergency Dispatch Center is alarmed
  • Human operators in NOC confirm FireDetect AI did, in fact, detect a real fire
  • EDC alarms first responders
  • Multiple fire-spreading simulations are evaluated and the results are forwarded to the on-site crews and command
  • Live video and photos are forwarded to the firefighters on fireline, providing real-time updates of wildfire direction changes

Case Study: Implementation in Croatia

OIV infrastructure covers almost the whole territory of the Republic of Croatia, and the cameras are mostly placed on positions that allow for the best optical visibility of the wildfire high-risk areas.

  • 92 cameras
  • 46 sites
  • 400+ positive alarms in year 2019.

We provide full service – from project scoping to implementation and support

Step 1: Terrain assessment

We do detailed on-site assessment of terrain to gather as much as possible knowledge about wildfire risks, weather situations, required camera locations (depends on area size, terrain configuration etc).

Step 2: Project proposal

We present you detailed project proposal with specifications of all required equipment (cameras, networks, energy sources) and operating proceses (how to alarm firefighters and emergency services). You can have full confidence that implemented FireDetect will really help with early wildfire detection.

Step 3: Implementation

We install all FireDetect AI related equipment (cameras, network devices), connect and configure network & software for optimal performance for your terrain situation. Eventual construction work, we expect to be provided by client (telescoping masts/towers for hosting cameras).

Step 4: Education

We will educate your staff on how to use FireDetect AI application and by showing them real-world situations make sure they are fully trained from beginning.

Step 5: Support

All our equipment is monitored 24/7 from our Network Operations Center for any sign of problems, and we can provide other kinds of support as will be detailed in SLA.
