A Stereovision System for Fire Characteristics Estimation


This paper presents a stereovision system for the measurement of forest fire spread characteristics. Images of the scene are captured by a pre-calibrated stereo camera. A new approach is introduced in order to capture a three dimensional flame structure and to estimate important characteristics of this phenomenon like position and rate of spread of the fire front, height, length, inclination and geometry of the flame surface. Results from indoor and outdoor experiments are presented. The obtained results are promising and show the potential of using the proposed system as a metrological tool for modeling and monitoring real-life fires.
