Smoke detection calls for a reliable and fast distinction between background, moving objects and variable shapes that are recognizable as smoke. In our system we propose a stable background suppression module joined with a smoke detection module working on segmented objects. It exploits two features: the energy variation in wavelet model and a color model of the smoke. The decrease of energy ratio in wavelet domain between background and current image is a clue to detect smoke representing the… CONTINUE READING
