Forest Fire Alerts Using ML, IOT and Node-RED
This fascinating project came up a few days ago and we wanted to share it with you all. The concept is to use a mesh network of IoT devices to monitor various indicators of potential and current wildfires and report data back to the relevant authorities. The system will use ML to predict wildfire risk levels and hopefully send warnings before a fire actually starts. The two developers Muhammed and Salman are planning to use Node-RED to manage the reporting of fires to the authorities.
