FIREWATCH - GIS-assisted Wireless Sensor Networks for Forest Fires

FIREWATCH - GIS-assisted Wireless Sensor Networks for Forest Fires

Duration: 30 months (2010 - 2013)

Start: 1/12/2010

Project Website:http://firewatch.cs.ucy.ac.cy/

Principal Investigator: Γιώργος Σαμάρας

Main Funding Source: ΙΠΕ-ΔΕΣΜΗ 2009-2010 ΔΙΑΡΘΡΩΤΙΚΑ

Total Cost: 111.719,6

FireWatch’s general objectives fully comply with the objectives of the Sustainable Development programme as it aims at creating a novel monitoring information system that will enable the realtime detection of forest fires by using state of the art technologies in WSNs. Additionally, the use of modern terrain analysis and geographical information will enable the involved authorities to take better courses of actions in the case of fires (e.g., optimal navigation paths to fires) as well as save precious time by patrolling mainly the areas that are identified by FireWatch as high risk. Furthermore, via the geographical information analysis, authorities will also know the real-time evolution of fires (i.e., fire spreading direction).

The experience gained through the use of such a system will help strengthen the present government’s monitoring infrastructure and will enable the provision of high quality monitoring services. This has a high impact in improving the preservation of the environment by diminishing forest damage, salvation of the wild life and avoidance of human losses. This is equally important for the Cyprus economy as Cyprus forests are a main attraction to high quality tourist groups.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as a number of Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 160 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 21.5 million euros.
