Hey everyone. So I decided to build an application powered by the Jetson series of devices to power Wildfire detection. I have used this as my submission for Jetson AI Specialist.
Hermes Application consists of two parts. An Intelligent Video Analytics Pipeline powered by Deepstream and NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX and a reconnaissance drone, for which I have used a Ryze Tello.
I have trained a YOLOv3 model to detect fire and plugged it into Deepstream with the help of a custom parser.
You can run the application on videos/RTSP streams or if you happen to have a drone, you can run the application on its stream and control the drone using the jetson device. :)
Here’s an extensive post - https://towardsdatascience.com/hermes-wildfire-detection-using-nvidia-jetson-and-ryze-tello-8da123f05c64
And finally, here’s the application in action - https://youtu.be/QubTN-L3lWQ
Hope you guys like it!
