AbstractThe progress on fire detection technologies has been substantial over the last decade due to advance in sensor, microelectronics and information technologies, as well as a greater understanding of fire physics. This paper provides a review of progress in fire detection technologies over the last decade, including various emerging sensor technologies (e.g., computer vision system, distributed fiber optic temperature sensor, and intelligent multiple sensor), signal processing and monitoring technology (e.g., real-time control via Internet) and integrated fire detection systems. Some problems and future research efforts related to current fire detection technologies are discussed.
