Abstract:Fire is basically the fast oxidation of a substance that produces gases and chemical productions. These chemical productions can be read by sensors to yield an insight about type and place of the fire. However, as fires may occur in indoor or outdoor areas, the type of gases and therefore sensor readings become different. Recently, wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have been used for environmental monitoring and real-time event detection because of their low implementation costs and their capability of distributed sensing and processing. In this paper, the authors investigate spatial analysis of data for indoor and outdoor fires using data-mining approaches for WSN-based fire detection purposes. This paper also delves into correlated data features in fire data sets and investigates the most contributing features for fire detection applications.
