Title of the Innovation: Water Mist System for Bus occupant Compartment Fire Protection System

Brief About Innovation

Based on the fire risk assessment of the standard bus the heat and smoke in the passenger compartment are controlled, thus providing additional evacuation time through effective thermal management during fire incidents, by providing Fire Protection and Alarm System (FP&AS).

A water-mist based fire protection and fire alarm system for buses have been designed to manage the temperature in the passenger compartment up to 50oC. The developed system in the passenger (occupant) compartment includes a network of tubing with a suitable number of atomizers linked to a water tank of appropriate capacity, along with a pressurized nitrogen cylinder. The fire alarm system comprises smoke detectors wired to a control panel which is to be installed near the driver's seat with the provision of an audiovisual alarm in case of fire.

This system reduces the risk to life and property and gives active protection measures in its implementation and complies with AIS-135 for occupant compartment. The same is being implemented in the Occupant Compartment in ‘Type III’ Vehicles (those are designed and constructed for long distance passenger transport, for seated passengers) and School Buses.
