Abstract : Using wireless networks to connect and communicate between geological sensors is a more scalable and suitable way for designing landslide monitoring and warning system for larger areas spanning many acres. Added to this, if the system has the capability to function in solar power, then it becomes autonomous system with self-organizing and self-healing networks. But high terrain, steep slopes, dense vegetation and lack of light during monsoon season to generate solar power pose serious challenges to develop such an autonomous system with good wireless coverage. This paper is about efforts to design, develop and deploy one such landslide warning system in eastern Himalayas. Pilot deployment is already in place and full deployment is under progress.
