Study Fire Detection Based On Color Spaces

color space, fire detection, scale factor, fire feature color


In this paper, the fire color feature is analysis and test on a set of color spaces (RGB, HSV, YCbCr, Lab, Yiq) to account the hue component and determination the best color space to represent the properties of fire and used in fire detection to increase accuracy and reduce the detection time and false alarms,four common types of fire (wood, cork, cloth, paper or cardboard ) were used to compare them with an image containing all the basic colors and analyze them and calculating Scale factor that depending on the histogram for hues value
