In response to this question, we came across the idea of the Forest Guard (KOZALAK)
as a wearable technology for trees. In a technologically advanced society, we can create a network of internet-connected physical objects that can share information. Trees can transmit messages just like the internet, which connects half of the world’s population through an invisible web of servers, computers, and devices. KOZALAK is an early wildfire detection system that creates an IoT network among trees. Modules of Kozalak are put on trees using flexible straps and they detect the fire by evaluating sudden temperature rises, CO2 levels, humidity levels, and gas classification. Then, they transfer data across the forest using the LoRaWAN networking protocol which allows for long-range communication with low power consumption by utilizing the LoRa technology. Accordingly, trees pass along their sensor measurements to each other until reaching a mesh gateway that sends all data to our online database. In the case of any abnormal condition, authorized personnel will be alerted immediately, and wildfires can be detected and controlled in their early phases.
