This work focuses on the implementation of a MEMS fire detection system for controlling wide remote forest regions. The system is based on an innovative approach exploiting MEMS sensors with specific functions for detecting gas, wind and temperature, integrating data collected by a custom software. The aim of the work is to detect variations of the parameters measured by the sensors because any variation will promptly identify the presence of a forest fire. The technology and the structure of the system will be used also for other different applications of environmental monitoring, both outdoor and indoor.
