NRMA Insurance in Australia have been working on an early bushfire detection and monitoring network called “FireBlanket”. It’s a prototype designed to sense, locate and track bushfire smoke before spreading a virtual safety blanket over at-risk communities across Australia. It’s early days of course, but you can imagine how powerful this could be, if it was brought to life. Created by the crew at M&C Saatchi in Sydney (thanks Jacko!).
