Video-based fire detection: Aviotec and the language of fire
This episode revolves around fire. Specifically, how to detect and fight them. Firefighter Shan Raffel is a true luminary. He teaches Melena and Geoff the language of fire. Bosch expert Soeren Wittmann also teaches how to read fire, but instead of firefighters, he smartens up security cameras. His team has enabled a camera system to visually recognize fire and smoke. It outperforms other fire detection devices in speed and is particularly superior in buildings with high ceilings. Multiple algorithms are involved with the detection, feeding an artificial intelligence system for alarm decisions. The next camera generation will also be equipped with a deep learning model. With all this intelligence, Aviotec is much more than video-based fire detection.
