The vent well and idea about using Theta V camera to monitor, count and live stream back to Firemen was on the table. One question raised by the panel was that during fire incident, electricity will be off, areas will clouded with smoke, flames, how do we plan to use the camera against all these. First of all electricity should not be a problem since Ricoh Theta can be battery driven and live streaming for hours if not days. But the challenge here is the smoke and fire, this will need infra-red module used with Theta.
This weekend I am at another hackathon on computing at edge but from next week I will into the infra-red module issues.
Any information that could help on the infra-red issue will be very well appreciated. Many thanks!
