Amrita Wireless Sensor Network for Landslide Detection System for Himalayas

This project is to study the feasibility for deploying an integrated real-time landslide monitoring and detection system using emerging wireless sensor network technology. The landslide monitoring and detection system will be used for the detection and early warning of rainfall-induced landslides, in three landslide prone areas in the Himalayas, India. 

The Wireless Sensor Network for real-time landslide monitoring & detection, which has been functioning in Munnar since 2008, proved its capability when it issued a real-time landslide warning in July 2009.

The Government of India have expressed interest in deploying it in other landslide-prone areas, including the rest of Kerala, Himalayan region and Maharashtra. In fact, R Chidambaram, principal scientific advisor to Government of India, visited the deployment site at Munnar with the intention of replicating the system in Northern parts of India.
