Abstract

House fire is mainly caused by stovetop of the kitchen. According to the research done by the NFPA, equipment unattended has become the leading factor in cooking fires and cooking fire casualties. The main idea of this project is to develop a prototype that can detect stovetop fire at the first place. To achieve the goal, the device uses temperature sensor to detect temperature on the stovetop and uses OpenMV camera to search human’s faces to determine whether there are people attendant and operating the Stovetop or not, meanwhile a timer will start to count down once the OpenMV determine that there is no one attendants front of stove.
