On November, 28 of 2020, an article authored by Maria João Sousa, Alexandra Moutinho and Miguel Almeida , was published in a peer-reviewed international journal, namely Sensors from the Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI).
The article presents analyses of the sensing capabilities and the image processing pipelines of thermal imaging sensors for fire detection applications, paving the way for the development of autonomous systems for early warning and monitoring of fire events.
The article is available online, published under an open-access licence (https://www.mdpi.com/1424-8220/20/23/6803).

On July, 22 of 2020, an article authored by Maria João Sousa, Alexandra Moutinho and Miguel Almeida , was presented at the World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI), a flagship biennial international conference that joins conferences of the three branches of computational intelligence, namely: fuzzy systems (FUZZ-IEEE), neural networks (IJCNN) and evolutionary computation (CEC).
The article proposes a data-driven optimization solution for the dimensioning and design of configurations of fleets of unmanned aerial vehicles, based on an estimated demand for the need to perform aerial missions in a given region. The case study analyzed focuses on the application of this method for situations of monitoring of forest fires.
