Abstract [en]

A device for identifying forest fires in an early stage has been developed during the course of this project. Attached to a drone, this prototype will provide a live-stream to a web server displaying a blended frame, made of a thermographic image showing thermal radiation and a regular photography with the visible light. The platform consists of a small single-boarded computer, a thermal camera sensor and a regular camera module. All powered by a power bank and fitted into a custom made 3D printed plastic case. At startup the computer automatically executes scripts written in Python, initializing its sensor components and processes the captured images which finally gets transmitted to a live-stream via a web server connection. Everything described above worked well, but originally the intent was for the web interface to provide a map with the current location coordinates of the drone. Since a module for mobile communication with support for GPS was not acquired, any implementation of such kind was impossible. However, several drone models already possess the feature to obtain such coordinates.
