In this paper, we propose a wireless sensor network paradigm for real-time forest fire detection. The wireless sensor network can detect and forecast forest fire more promptly than the traditional satellite-based detection approach. This paper mainly describes the data collecting and processing in wireless sensor networks for real-time forest fire detection. A neural network method is applied to in-network data processing. We evaluate the performance of our approach by simulations.
