Fire Detection in Video Sequences

Our system uses an automatic system for fire detection in video sequences. We use color and motion information computed from video sequences to locate fire. Unlike previous vision-based methods for fire detection, our method is applicable to more areas because of its insensitivity to camera motion. Two specific applications not possible with previous algorithms are the recognition of fire in the presence of global camera motion or scene motion and the recognition of fire in entertainment and movies for possible use in an automatic rating system.
