The main objective of the SAFESENS project is to obtain earlier and more reliable fire detection in combination with accurate occupancy detection by co-integrating multiple gas sensor and presence detection technologies in both building safety systems and personal monitors.

More specifically, the SAFESENS project will:

  • Enable early detection of fire by measuring multiple gases (e.g. VOC, CO2, CO) and increasing fire detection reliability by interpreting measured data with sensor fusion algorithms.
  • Co-integrate gas sensors with presence detection technology (i.e. micro-bolometer) for HABA systems and generate fire propagation and building occupancy maps for efficient evacuation planning.
  • Create new gas detectors that are wearable and localizable (i.e. a personal health monitor for rescue workers with inertial and RF localization technologies)
