SMOKESENSEProject reference: 605480

Fire Fingerprint Sensor-On-A-Chip For Early Fire Detection
"The SMEs behind SMOKESENSE intend to introduce a radical change in the fire detection technology currently in use today, through the development of a novel fire-detection system involving the development of miniaturised smart fire-detection sensors, and associated sensor systems.
Currently available technologies have several limitations such as 1) extensive maintenance requirements; 2) limited scope of measurements and amount of gasses 3) complex data analysis requirements and on top of these, 4) they are not capable to perform early detection, as usually the sensor is far from the source of fire. This last restriction results in extensive economic, and ultimately even personal, losses either due to late extinction responses or false alarms.
The new detector will be marketed in two different variants, a dish shaped unit to be installed in ceilings and a mini-sensor to be embedded in electrical appliances, hence broadening the potential applications of the new technologies developed and returning a high profitability business case for all the involved SMEs.
In order to achieve the project objectives, the SMEs that integrate the consortium will collaborate with renown RTD performers to overcome scientific and technical barriers related to 1) developing the best combination of gas sensing technologies to arrive at a detailed and elaborated classification of smoke types; and 2) to optimizing miniaturization of electronic circuits and data processing/ communications.
Besides improving the competitiveness of the participating SMEs, the project will significantly contribute to broader goals in terms of safety and regulations for fire fighting."
