exci is excited to announce that Alberta Innovates, in partnership with Agriculture, Forestry, and Rural Economic Development (AFRED), has invited exci to participate in a trial of early wildfire detection technology, starting in June 2022. exci has partnered with AEM, Canada, to provide the camera hardware, which includes patent-pending surveillance scalability technology.
Alberta Agriculture and Forestry commissioned an independent review of wildfire management in response to the unprecedented wildfires. The commission’s report, released in July 2019, made several recommendations, including that the government should invest in early wildfire detection technology to detect and rapidly respond to wildfires as quickly as possible following ignition.
exci’s artificial intelligence detects fires in camera images from Alberta Marten Mountain
exci’s technology detects bushfires as early as one minute after ignition using satellite and ground-based sensor data that is analysed by powerful deep machine learning algorithms. Even small fires are automatically detected within minutes of ignition, with a near-zero rate of false positives.
exci is the only early wildfire detection system that has already been proven in a large-scale proof of concept in California (with over 125 million acres) and large commercial deployments in Australia (where it covers over 2 million hectares of land).
exci would like to thank Alberta Innovates for the opportunity to make a significant contribution to early wildfire detection in Alberta, aimed at reducing the risk significantly and improving the resilience of Alberta’s communities against wildfire.
