PluriFi for Forest Fire Detection

Park rangers and rescue personnel are tasked with a variety of tasks ranging from forest fire detection and warning, to hiker tracking and assistance in remote areas which are hard to reach and where often there is no cellular coverage to enable communication with the hikers. When a fire breaks out in a remote area every minute counts for authorities to consolidate an effective response team and gather the necessary resources. Early warning of such an event as well as the ability to communicate with individuals in the area can be crucial for the safe conclusion of such a situation.
