UAV-based forest fire detection and tracking using image processing techniques

  title={UAV-based forest fire detection and tracking using image processing techniques},
  author={Chi Yuan and Zhixiang Liu and Youmin Zhang},
  journal={2015 International Conference on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (ICUAS)},
In this paper, an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) based forest fire detection and tracking method is proposed. Firstly, a brief illustration of UAV-based forest fire detection and tracking system is presented. Then, a set of forest fire detection and tracking algorithms are developed including median filtering, color space conversion, Otsu threshold segmentation, morphological operations, and blob counter. The basic idea of the proposed method is to adopt the channel “a” in Lab color model to… CONTINUE READING
