Early Wildfire Detection and Alert System

Redhorse completed the custom design and field implementation of an innovative wildfire detection system for a major public utility in Southern California. The state-of-the-art system combines wired and wireless networking, solar-powered remote pan-tilt-zoom (PTZ) video cameras mounted on select high-voltage transmission towers, and a central software algorithm that receives and analyzes real-time video streams from 24 cameras simultaneously on a 24×7 basis. This fully automated system was designed to cover fire-prone areas across a 120-mile distance and generate automated alerts to designated first responders.
