Dryad Silvanet - Ultra-early detection system of wildfires using sensors, wireless network and analytics platform
Dryad Silvanet allows to reduce dramatically the reaction time and enables firefighters to extinguish a fire before it spreads out of control. The wireless sensors are solar powered, measuring temperature, humidity and air pressure. Thanks to it sensitive gas sensors, it can detect wildfires even during the smoldering phase. Dryad aims to help protect the world’s largest carbon sink and home for 3/4 of all biodiversity globally. It addresses deforestation and emissions from forest fires which contribute up to 20% of the global CO2 emissions. Dryad will also mitigate the economic damage caused by wildfires, estimated to be at $140bn per year, tapping into a substantial market potential with insurances, forest owners and governments.
