Project description

For the safety of people, it is important to predict flashover in case of a growing fire in a building compartment. With current calculation methods this is not yet possible. In this project, use will be made of images from security cameras. These data are treated in compressed format and sent to computers for analysis. By means of the analysis results and by means of, to be developed, simplified calculation methods, the fire development can be predicted.
