Abstract

Chemical sensing may be better suited than conventional smoke-based detectors for the detection of certain type of fires, in particular in fires where smoke appears after gas emissions. However, chemical-based systems also respond to non-fire scenarios that also release volatiles. For this reason, discrimination models need to be trained under different fire and non-fire scenarios. This is usually performed in standard fire rooms, the access to which is very costly. In this work, we present a calibration model combining experiments from standard fire room and small-scale setup. Results show that the use of small-scale setup experiments improve the performance of the system.
