Computer Vision based Fire Detection System

Many fire detection devices have been around for quite some time and they are essential safety devices. This white-paper presents a computer vision based fire detection system. The system takes input from a video camera and on analyzing the input, decides whether fire pixels are present in the input feed or not. To analyze, the system uses color and luminance features of the input images. Based on the decision, the system can raise a fire alarm.
