In addition to the instability of energy import costs caused by the depletion of petroleum resources, which is a representative energy resource, and the strengthening of various regulations such as the convention on climate change, the plant for bio energy production, which is being watched as the next generation energy, and became subject of various complaints. In order to solve this problem, the bio-plant is underground and the ground is parked, making the convenience and accessibility of citizens more and more accessible. In this situation, the development of bioenergy production technology also increases the risk factor in bioenergy production process. Accordingly this paper explains method about apply the wide angle camera based AOA algorithm to the bio plant to prevent the accidents from spreading due to the lack of facilities and safety devices and the aging of the facilities and suggests a technique that can quickly identify the location and direction when it occurs.
