How can these sensors detect the fire? How can they know it’s a real fire but not just a burning cigarette?
The built-in artificial intelligence (AI) of the sensors is continually trained for the specific ‘smell’ of the target forest on fire. Our customers collect samples from the forest floor and send them to Germany so that we can train our AI in the lab. Over time, we will collect more and more samples from typical forests in the different parts of the world and will eventually no longer have to train the AI for new deployments as there is only a finite amount of forest types. We expect this to be the case within the first two years of operation.
Doing so allows our Silvanet system to be continuously evolving and improving and greatly minimizes any risks of false positives within the platform.
