Wireless sensor networks are one of the emerging areas which have equipped scientists with the capability of developing real-time monitoring systems. This paper discusses the development of a wireless sensor network(WSN) to detect landslides, which includes the design, development and implementation of a WSN for real time monitoring, the development of the algorithms needed that will enable efficient data collection and data aggregation, and the network requirements of the deployed landslide detection system. The actual deployment of the testbed is in the Idukki district of the Southern state of Kerala, India, a region known for its heavy rainfall, steep slopes, and frequent landslides.
