I was part of the implementation of Micro-controller based fire alarm system with extinguisher was a research project funded by the University Research Center, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Sylhet, Bangladesh. This project was designed to combat fire in any office environment. It incorporated fire detection and extinguisher in one module. The main goal was to make the system cost effective. Fire was detected using both heat and smoke detection. After a fire is detected the system is able to automatically turn on a fire extinguisher so that the fire will not able to damage an office space.
I was involved in the fire detection via heat and integration of the project. For this project PIC micro-controller was used
