Abstract

The majority of house and commercial fires occur in the kitchen, and the majority of these fires are caused by cooking equipment. Namely stove tops and heating surfaces. The goal of project safestove is to stop fires on electric stove tops. This is because most stove fires are caused by negligence and/or the fire makes accessing the stove impossible without injury. Safestove will have features already present in many high end cooking appliances. However, these appliances are either only realistically applicable in a commercial setting and cost more than the average person is willing to spend on cooking equipment.The safestove will have similar safety features but will be adaptable to most household kitchens and electrical stoves. The safestove will use an arduino and sensors to be able to detect a fire and turn off the stove autonomously. It will also be able to be paired with already existing, more significant countermeasures.
