Every year thousands of people are killed by indoor fires. This project hopes to address this problem, by assisting firefighters with controlling indoor fires and evacuating victims. Cameras connected to raspberry pis are placed wherever possible in the building, and then once a fire is detected, these cameras work together to help identify the location and intensity of the fire in different parts of the building, so that firefighters can see where they need to be, before they even get to the scene. The vision system will also identify people and count victims, so that firefighters can receive an accurate measure of how many people are still in the building, how close individuals are to danger, and if there is anyone potentially trapped inside.
