12 March 2013 Estimation of spreading fire geometrical characteristics using near infrared stereovision
Author Affiliations +
In fire research and forest firefighting, there is a need of robust metrological systems able to estimate the geometrical characteristics of outdoor spreading fires. In recent years, we assist to an increased interest in wildfire research to develop non destructive techniques based on computer vision. This paper presents a new approach for the estimation of fire geometrical characteristics using near infrared stereovision. Spreading fire information like position, rate of spread, height and surface, are estimated from the computed 3D fire points. The proposed system permits to track fire spreading on a ground area of 5mx10m. Keywords: near infrared, stereovision, spreading fire, geometrical characteristics
