Project Description

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 processed by an AI and Machine learning based system to develop an alert system.
