Abstract

This paper presents a fire-alarming method based on video processing. We propose a system that uses color and motion information extracted from video sequences to detect fire. Flame can be recognized according to its color which is a primary element of fire images. Thus choosing a suitable color model is the key to detect flames from fire images. An effective fire detection criterion based on color model is proposed in this paper by intensive experiments and trainings. The detection criterion is used to make a raw localization of fire regions first. However, color alone is not enough for fire detection. To identify a real burning fire, in addition to chromatic features, dynamic features are usually adopted to distinguish other fire aliases. In this paper, both the growth of fire region and the invariability of flame are utilized to further detect the fire regions as a complement of the detection criterion. The effectiveness of the proposed fire-alarming method is demonstrated by the experiments implemented on a large number of scenes.
