Deflagration detector / prospecting instrument

Deflagration detector

The average number of fires in China during the six years from 2012 to 2019 is 4,105.5 per year according to the data, and deflagration is very likely to occur after a fire. In 2019, the forest fire happened in Liangshan, Sichuan had witnessed the deflagration which led to the death of 30 firefighters. However, deflagration can be eliminated or the rate of its occurrence can be reduced in advance. Therefore, I want to design an instrument that can help the mountain patroller to know the place of deflagration risk in advance and conduct observation and monitoring for a long time.
