SMOKESENSE intends to introduce a radical change in the fire detection technology currently in use today, through the creation of a novel fire-detection system involving the development of miniaturised smart fire-detection sensors, and associated sensor systems. The new technology will address the need in fire detection to improve sensitivity, and reduce false alarms. It is intended to develop the technology to plug in to existing fire alarm type of applications, and to develop new forms to make it applicable to a wider range of fire detection and prevention. The project will significantly contribute to broader goals in terms of safety and regulations for firefighting.
Innovayt worked closely with the partners of the project in order to present a successful proposal that will receive a grant of approximately 1.6 million euros.
