Ghassan's project aims to reduce wildfire
TEAM MEMBER :
INTRODUCTION:The general idea of this project is around a machine that can forecast any activities that can lead to wildfire.
In the last decades, wildfire caused the death of more than 10,000 people around the world, exodus more than half million, and costed more than 200 billion dollars.
The main reason behind wildfire is high temperature which resulting from global warming also, due to some negligence of people.
BENEFICIARIES OF GHASSAN
A. Fire departments:
They are facing many challenges in order to control the fire, especially during a windy weather. Ghassan project can offer a great solution because it provides them an early warning by testing and analyzing any activities change that can caused a wildfire.
it helps them to reduce much of human lost and billions of dollars cost by sending an information that can helped governments to make an early decisions to save people lives.
HOW OUR SENSOR WORKS
The main tool in the program, it is functionate to record, test, analyze any activities that could caused wildfire, and send a warning with a specific location to the civil defiance and fire department. Sensor will be spread in a wild with a mile distance between each one. These sensors will be design to works by alternative energy such as solar, `hydroelectricity, wind power, and long life butteries
THE APPLICATIONIt designs to collect data from the users area to keep him updated. In the fire event, the application will locate the area , determine the risk level. The application will send notifications to users to keep them posted about any changes during the fire event
•Early forecast of fire.
•Determine the fire location and the risk level.
•Low cost of establishing the project.
•Ability to use drones, airplane without pilots, to control fire.
•Works with alternative energy.
• The sensors costs:
The proposed solution of the cost challenge is to use low cost materials as well as checking the quality standards of such products.
. The high amount of energy usage:
The proposed solution of the energy challenge is to use recyclable materials, and alternative energy such as solar, wind power, hydroelectricity.
•Saving lives of humans and wildlife is the main goal for Ghassan Program, and we want to help governments and support their efforts to reduce wildfire risks
