IoT and Image Processing based Forest Monitoring and Counteracting System


Forests are the indispensable resource of our life as they cover one third of the land on earth. They provide us with plenty of amenities required to sustain our life. However, for the past few decades, the forest area has been degrading immensely. Recently forest fire has become the greatest menace to our planet. In 2019 Amazon rainforest wildfire destroyed thousands hectors of forest. To get a control over it, a well-organized forest monitoring system is created. This system is based on the emerging technology of IoT and image processing. In our system, these technologies are utilized with the Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). This system provides a continuous live data of the forest environmental conditions. Utilizing this in our work helps us to detect fire intensity which enables water discharge for extinguishing fire when the conditions become unfavourable. This process will be helpful for controlling the wildfire.
