Abstract

As underground mines become deeper and larger with wide specifications it creates a diverse environment with multiple variables that make fire disasters difficult to manage. Therefore, developing an integrated fire safety system is of crucial importance in order to effectively deal with fire disasters and protect the life of every worker. The proposed prototype system in this study uses available technology that can integrate information about fire risk assessment, fire detection, safety situation awareness, and effective system for evacuation displayed on smartphone device to create an intelligent and two-way fire safety system. The proposed system uses sensors, detectors, smartphones, Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, application gateways, and application program interfaces for solving the problems of building the effective fire safety system. Two-way communication and 3D visualization with evacuation guidance are other possible functions of the proposed system for fire safety. Developing and implementing this prototype fire safety system can effectively provide information about fire risks, fire safety, fire detection, alarm responses, optimal evacuation routes, 3D visualization and simulation of evacuation routes, arrow and voice evacuation guidance from smartphone device and overall building fire safety with disaster response capabilities for every underground mine.
