The Use of Wireless Sensor Networks for Forest Fire Monitoring - A Survey

Authors(3) :-Mehwish Zaheer, Rabia Riaz, Shakeeb Ahmad

Wireless sensor network consists of small sensor nodes, deployed to capture various events of interest. For example, temperature, oxygen, humidity sensor nodes are deployed in remote, hostile and geographical areas where the presence of human being is infeasible. These nodes are powered by small battery, to communicate with each other for monitoring various environments. These networks have found their applications in various domains such as forest fire monitoring, industrial monitoring, military surveillance, inventory tracking, agriculture monitoring and health care monitoring. Forest fire is the disaster having many negative effects in social, economic and ecological matters. Forest fire cost million dollars in damage and claim many human lives every year.
