# iSafe This is an app that engages the users to report any hazards and at the same time alerts them either if some user in the area has reported a hazard or a government agency sending the alerts. This also cautions the users based on the historical data of disasters when they are in those affe...

Signal- A Live Bushfire Reporting App

The Signal app collects live data on bushfires by allowing residents in bushfire prone areas to report and provide information to the RFS. It also provides users with current information and allows the authority to post updates and alerts.

iFAS (instant Fire Alert System)

iFAS – Instant Fire Alert System to alert residents at different stages of fire iFAS is built to collect real time data using ad hoc sensor network deployed into the bushes. From the deployed area the system gets smoke, heat, animal movement, humidity, and environmental sound data to be p...

Online Monitoring of High-Voltage Transmission Lines and Bush Fire System

Online monitoring of high-voltage transmission lines and bush fire system can perform all-weather, real-time monitoring of the operating conditions of high-voltage transmission lines operating in harsh environments, which can effectively reduce the construction of surrounding lines (dangerous poi...

Fire Watch

The recent Australian bushfire disaster has caused a huge amount of damage to communities across the nation, killing many people and animals and destroying many homes. These persistent disasters call for an immediate solution which uses reliable data to alert people about nearby fires. In order t...

FireCloud is an automated, data-driven, and real-time bushfire monitoring and early warning broadcast system. Our idea is to supplement existing satellite-based fire detection systems with ground-based, IoT remote sensing devices. During bushfire season, it allows the Fire Service and concerned c...

What is resilience and how do we measure it? To answer this question, we looked for inspiration from the immune system - a resilient machinery that has evolved to fight against attacks. A big component of immunity is memory - the immune system has a mechanism that retains information so that ...

Ready. Aim. Fire.

# Using citizen science to help prepare for, predict and prevent losses from bushfire events Current fire detection systems are limited to public observation and reporting. This is a low cost, low fidelity solution to a potentially catastrophic problem. Every minute of delay in reporting and r...

Fires - a new way

The number, severity and area burnt by bushfires is increasing. The resources available to fire authorities to manage this problem are not increasing at a commensurate rate. As a result, bushfires are exceeding the resource capacities of authorities which is having an increasing impact on the com...

Watchtower: An operational management system with integrated Telstra messaging and CSIRO data analytics for a smarter, more connected modern emergency service

Australia has many emergency services, [Vic SES](https://www.ses.vic.gov.au/), [NSW SES](https://www.ses.nsw.gov.au/), CFA, RFS, and so on. The duty officers of many of these services still rely on spreadsheets to organise their crews, and when a job is on they have to activate crew by manually t...
