Our Sentinel system provides on-the-edge AI monitoring to protect electric utilities and fire vulnerable communities while reducing wildfire impacts. Our real-time system detects and reports fires in the incipient phase with a visual image for rapid (under 2 minutes from ignition) human confirmation. It is functional even in areas with no cellular communications (satellite modem) with a power envelope easily satisfied by a solar panel and battery. Our modular system leverages multiple sensor combinations (visible/IR images, air quality, and environment data) through edge-based AI to analyze the sensor data and detect smoke or flames in seconds with low false alarm rates. Connectivity and industrial controls functionality can be extended to other remote applications. Relationships are sought with utilities to pilot this proven wildfire mitigation technology.
