Fire Detection Design
Fire detection is becoming more important and is often a requirement for many industrial plants. A good fire detection system can reduce the damage costs quite significantly. For big plants, this means a lot of sensors which can become expensive when they all require a long communication channel. A centralized network not efficient for big plants. A decentralized network does not need a centralized hub or long communication channels. This reduces the amount of power for transmitting the information. Another advantage of using a decentralized network is the decrease of the computational power since this is spread over all of the sensors instead of a single device.
This researched has showed the convergence rate for multiple synchronous and asynchronous distributed algorithms for calculating the average temperature of the network. It also evaluated a proposed Fire Detection design for a square mesh network.Fire_Detection
