Press information from Rajya Sabha: Amrita Real Time Landslide Monitoring and Detection System

The Minister of State for Planning, Science & Technology and Earth Sciences Dr. Ashwani Kumar stated in Rajya Sabha today that so far no technology system is developed to predict natural calamities in the country. However, a pilot deployment of a tailored real time wireless sensor network (WSN) is designed and developed by the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham for monitoring and detection of heavy rainfall induced landslides only over a selected hill slope of Munnar, Kerala. Extensive field experiments will have to be conducted for determining the effects of density of the nodes, vegetation, location of sensor columns etc., for detecting rainfall induced landslides that may possibly help in the development of low cost wireless sensor network for landslide detection in the future... Read More »»
