Forest fires are caused accidentally. It is useful to implement dynamically monitoring for forest fire for effectively controlling firing disaster and making use of forest fire. Embedded systems have been used widely in remote monitor fields in recent years. The basic monitoring system discussed in this article is composed of ColdFire kernel processor with high-capability and low-consumption, and the open source embedded Linux. By extending RS232 interface and modules, the system builds the fire auto-monitoring platform and provides the system structure and software implementation. The article also discussed the key technologies are given.

This paper was originally presented at the Eighth Real-Time Linux Workshop held at the at the School for Information Science and Engineering, Lanzhou University, in Lanzhou, China.
