A Novel Method for Forest Fire Detection Based on Convolutional Neural Network
Abstract— In a forest fire, smoke and fire always appear together. The study of smoke usually uses traditional methods, while deep learning focuses mostly on the features of flame. According to the fact that the smoke is always observed earlier than the flame in the forest fire, this paper presents a deep convolutional neural network model for forest fire detection based on the study of forest fire detecting images. Experimental results show that the deep convolutional neural network for forest fire detection has a higher accuracy than the traditional method in recognition of forest fires by detecting smoke and flame together. In addition, the deep convolutional neural network for forest fire detection combines with preprocessing of ZCA whitening and padding of same size output, which improves the experimental speed and prediction accuracy.
