SIADEX is an intelligent system capable of generating, in an autonomous way, extinction plans for forest fires on the ground from the available data (where did the fire started, environment, resources available, etc.). This system gathers a series of computer programs, among which two stand out: BACAREX, a knowledge base where the experience of the Plan INFOCA is included, and the SIADEX, a program capable of using ...
