Paper Abstract

Fire detection based on video surveillance is a very effective method for large area outdoor fire prevention, but the unpredictable place and time makes automatic fire detection a difficult problem. This paper adopts a loose color selection and frame differential to narrow down possible fire regions, where every pixel’s temporal color variations are analyzed by 3-state Markov modals. One of the Markov modal is used for brightness variation examination and the other one is used for fire color likeness that is measured by color difference. In order to eliminate false detections, the fractal dimension calculation and texture match are performed. Experimental results prove the proposed method is feasible and suitable for outdoor or indoor fire detection in surveillance videos.
