A Review Paper on Fire Detection

Deepashri K.M, Santhosh K.V


Fire is a common disastrous phenomenon that causes a serious threat to life and property. In order to protect life and property, a good fire detection system is necessary. However, the major concern with existing fire detection system design is about false alarm problem. In the present review, a fire detection system with reduced false alarm rates are identified and still the best method is suggested. Based from current literature survey, a number of research results for reducing false alarms such as multisensor technique, the use of neural networks, and image processing are identified. This formed the basis for developing new fire detection techniques and would be useful for future fire protection.
