Crowdsourcing has become a mainstream alternative for innovation initiatives to create new ideas, best practices are emerging.

The knowledge base is building up, ... Let's take a look at these CloudBrigade / cloudbrigade-deepblaster projects to come up with new, better idea:

Convert CloudBrigade / cloudbrigade-deepblaster into a tool for fighting forest fires. That identifies forest fire spots. Replacing the toy blaster, with a fire extinguisher

If possible testable on GazeboSim

If possible ad this features: Simulating the forest fire;Deep Reinforcement Learning to control ; Swarm Intelligence Models in

Simulated Environment For Autonomous Robot Wildfire Suppression

If you don't get everything, do something simpler just to present a proof of concept

To demonstrate the functionality and to verify that the concept can be achieved in development.

A exercise that allows developers to visualize how the product will function.

If you are not familiar with the gazebo, use the simulator you prefer

In the end provide the working software as available open source code in GitHub

To introduce the concept of Precision Firefighting for Early Site Specific Fire Management.

Crowdsourcing & Open Innovation Project :

Green Guard A. I. Automata (G²AIA)

Supporting Open-Source Projects Enabling Autonomous Wildfire Suppression  for Everyone

 

We're at a crucial point in a journey and you need to be a part of what’s ahead.

Fire seasons are running longer, stronger, hotter.

 

There’s a vicious cycle connecting forest fires and climate change: warmer temperatures make fires more likely, and burning forests release greenhouse gas pollution that makes global warming worse.

 

The world is getting warmer, the weather is getting worse.

 

Wildfires Can Affect Climate Change (and Vice Versa), We’re not here to persuade you. You already get it.

 

This means that overall efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and slow global warming will also help prevent forest fires. And on the other hand, working to reduce the number and severity of forest fires will also help slow climate change.

Because we’re at a crucial inflection point in the journey.

 

And you need to be a part of what’s ahead. In a process of looking at forest fire in a new and unorthodox way

We need to adapt our wildfire response strategies to a world of more frequent, more intense fires.

 

Collaborate makes it easy for teams to save, share and sync projects. Collaborating like free Open Source Developers. Getting better and better at coordinating wildfire response.

 

Technology has the potential to change that, facilitating collaboration through new channels and tools for conducting cross-disciplinary (Internet of things (IoT),Swarm intelligence (SI), Automato Quadruped Robotics and UAVs (Unmanned aerial vehicles) in a computer-simulated environment, predicting trends and building strategies to turn data into actionable insights.

 

The first step?

 

Green Guard A. I. Automata (G²AIA)

 

An acronym for inception of the project and inspiration that stands for that the living and nonliving components of earth function as a single system in such a way that the living component regulates and maintains conditions so as to be suitable for life.

 

But the first questions to ask are radically simple ones: where are we making a positive impact? Could we have an exponentially bigger impact if we shared what we’re doing? What’s stopping us?

 

The objectives of the project are:

 

Swarm Intelligence Models in Simulated Environment For Autonomous Drone and Quadruped Robot Wildfire Suppression

 

Data-driven forest fire analysis (information about real time or historical data conditions) from a burning area, transform it into a simulation environment and obtain the best fire-fighting strategy.  Reality-based generation of virtual environments for digital earth (mixture of real and virtual imagery), using satellite/aerial images and maps, virtual, augmented, and mixed reality combined.

 

To demonstrate the functionality and to verify that the concept can be achieved in development.

 

Developers will test their fire fighting methods with this simulation.

 

It’s about using – and improving on.

 

It’s a long-term approach to innovation and impact to demonstrate the functionality and to verify that the concept can be achieved in development.

 

A valuable exercise that allows developers to visualize how the product will function.

 

It is a working interactive model of the product that gives an idea of the design, navigation and layout.

 

Working on advances that helped revive interest in the field using an economical and easily reproducible setup as open source tools conforming to commercially available tech, specification, standards and current regulatory guidance

 

The source code to be used, modified and distributed commercially or non-commercially by anyone under the terms of GNU General Public License. The project is inspired by the revolutionary aspects of Linux that are social, not technical.

 

From the beginning, with the aim of being casually modified by volunteers coordinating only through the Internet.

 

The quality maintained by the simple strategy of obtaining feedback and insights from users, creating a kind of gradual and participatory evolution.

 

Freely redistributable, anyone can create a distribution.

 

For insights visit forestfirehub.com, there you can support us with your opinion or mini review.

 

If you’ve ever seen Smokey the Bear, you know that “Only YOU can prevent wildfires.” Over the past several years, you’ve probably watched news reports about the great damage that wildfires can cause. In addition to destroying forests, wildfires can burn homes and even take lives.

 

Science must evolves to be relevant to society

 

Humans have the option to use the results of scientific endeavour (Green Technologies & Solutions) or dispute and ignore them (like some people

on climate change)

 

Some features of the project in development process to be launched as a research and development plataform for autonomous wildfire supression technology:

 

- Unreal Engine or GAZEBO enviroment built on ROS 2

- Build the terrain using realworld map data

- The software will simulate the dispersion of fire using an algorithm. Also calculate the wind effect.

- This simulation will have drones and quadruped robots. Developers (eg cooperative participants) will be able to use these tools.

- Image processing can be done with cameras on robots and drones.

- The software will simulate the progress of the fire

- The administrator will use an interface to control wind speed, wind direction and similar physical and environmental elements with  simulation settings made in an interface.

-Computer models using data, math and computer instructions to predict events in the real world.

-Data-driven forest fire analysis (information about real time or historical data conditions) from a burning area, transform it into a simulation environment and obtain the best fire-fighting strategy.

-Reality-based generation of virtual environments for digital earth (mixture of real and virtual imagery), using satellite/aerial images and maps, virtual, augmented, and mixed reality combined.

-Simulating the forest fire plume dispersion, chemistry, and aerosol formation

- AI to control drones and quadruped robo: Deep Reinforcement Learning

 

Essentially rule-based structures for making decisions.

 

In general, conforming to commercially available tech, specification, standards and current regulatory guidance.

 

Why Are These Insights Valuable?

 

Inspire, motivate and be curious about the data and the possibilities it has for firefighting

Spot the potential opportunities.

 

These insights have many uses, including:

 

Data Analysis:

 

Customizing data as insightful visualisations

Directing future data collection

Extrapolating current trends

 

Designing for scale:

Designing with the next generation of drones and quadruped robots in mind.

Building for error-prone environments in the real world.

Informing feature engineering

 

Integration:

Informing human decision-making

New efforts without disrupting current and future fire fighting forces

 

Smart Action Planning:

Intelligently route the right alerts to swarms of robots operations

Customizable alerts are triggered or cleared at specific severity levels to help strategic planning.

Cross Border Cooperation in microgrids

 

Always Alert:

Proactive issue detection and prevention models.

Time analysis and alert propagation brings down fire alerts time from hours to seconds.

 

 

 

Ethical Concerns:

 

Certainly, drone and robotic quadruped will need to play by the rules and follow regulatory guidelines, especially in emergency situations.

 

Evaluating, as Open Source recommends, a variety of issues including ethical concerns by contributors representing a wide range of viewpoints.

 

Wildfires are destructive forces, but they can occur naturally. Because of this, certain plants and animals have evolved to depend on periodic wildfires for ecological balance.

It might seem counterintuitive that a fire, which burns plant life and endangers animals within an ecosystem, could promote ecological health. But fire is a natural phenomenon, and nature has evolved with its presence.

Human-induced climate change promotes the conditions on which wildfires depend, increasing their likelihood — according to a review of research on global climate change and wildfire risk.

In the end, it is true that the burden of preventing uncontrolled wildfires lies with humanity

 

Not meant to be competitors with the firefighters, we want to be complementary

Because drones can fly day or night and gain rapid access to previously inaccessible urban or rural fires they can help to save both the lives of the public and first responders. Using intelligent robots to scout the area and drop water or Fire Retardant can allow humans to stand further back from the danger zone, only looking at the drones’ data to make decisions from the safety of a command and control centre.

 

Firefighting automation is inevitable. It’s just a matter of time when tech will have the potential to alleviate challenges people face every day.

 

Cross Border Cooperation is a key element to be considered

 

The age of fire is upon us, climate change is subverting the system. The fires of this new era cannot always be tamed. Neither aircraft nor ground crews can do much for the blazes that spread quickly with powerful winds. That has forced firefighting “to be a global effort, not a state or national effort. Time to rethink the system of neighbours resource sharing.

Finding and identifying opportunitys, developing the projects for installation and operating the microgrids.

 

Precision Firefighting

 

Introduce the concept of Precision Firefighting for Early Site Specific Fire Management. As “a management strategy that uses information technology to bring data from multiple sources to bear on decisions associated with firefighting. Encompassing techniques and methods for firefighting management by taking into account their local and site-specific heterogeneity and variability

Ororatechs space based early wildfire warnings

OroraTech’s plan is to use a constellation of about 100 satellites equipped with custom infrared cameras to watch the entire globe (or at least the parts most likely to burst into flame) at once, reporting any fire bigger than 10 meters across within half an hour.
