A wireless sensor network system for landslide detection has been developed by Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham in collaboration with the European Commission. The technological breakthrough was developed as part of the research project WINSOC (Wireless Sensor Network with Self-Organisation Capabilities for Critical and Emergency Applications). The project was co-funded by the Information Society and Media Directorate General (INFSO DG) of the European Commission.
The Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, with the support of the European Commission (EC), has developed India''s first-ever wireless sensor network system for landslide detection.
India's first ever cutting-edge wireless sensor network system, designed to detect landslides at least 24 hours ahead of its occurrence, has been set up at Munnar in the high range Idukki district of Kerala where eight persons had lost their lives in 2005 landslides.
Scientists from the Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham have developed India's first wireless sensor network system for landslide detection under a 3.5 million Euro research project funded by the European Commission. Read More »»
