|Name||Real-Time Forest Fire Mapping and Spread Forecast Using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles|
This project will develop a solution to support firefighting actions in forest fires through the realtime detection and tracking of fire fronts and reburns. This will be achieved by processing the information acquired from manned and unmanned aerial vehicles equipped with specialized sensing and communication systems, that overfly the affected areas. This information will be made available to the coordination and fighting units on a graphical interface the localization of the fire events in georeferenced coordinates. Forecasts of the fire front evolution, images of the fire area, wind speed and direction, and other meteorological data of interest will also be supplied. This information is of great value for decision making on firefighting actions.
