Forest Fire Monitoring Using UAVs

The project aims to utilize unmanned aerial vehicles in order to detect forest fires. UAVs will be equipped with radiometric thermal cameras for measuring ground temperature. Once a fire is detected the information about the location and temperature of the fire including images of the fire will be transferred to a ground station in order to help fire crews to deal with the fire quickly and efficiently.
