The Advantages of Detectium's Solution
Our solution incorporates a state-of-the-art highly sensitive IR detector, enabling the detection of small temperature anomalies and flames both indoors and outdoors. In addition, we enhance the system with active learning on an RGB sensor, significantly elevating visibility and accuracy levels. With a rapid detection time of under 9 seconds for small fires, we outperform current fire detection systems, ensuring quick and efficient fire detection.
Our cutting-edge thermal and RGB camera sensor technologies offers an expansive detection range, setting a new standard in fire detection capabilities. Our solution stands out by detecting flames of 0.01 square meters size from an impressive distance of 60 meters away. In comparison, traditional fire detection methods using smoke detectors typically have a limited range of approximately 10.5 meters, and heat detectors come in at around 7.5 meters.
Use of data
By harnessing the power of machine learning algorithms to analyze historical data collected at the factory over an extended period, specifically focusing on various fire hazard incidents our solution intelligently identifies and maps high-risk areas, enabling more effective and targeted risk mitigation strategies for the future. Additionally, we continuously retrain our machine learning model to ensure its adaptability and efficiency in managing all possible scenarios.
