Earthquake detection at the edge: IoT crowdsensing network

  title={Earthquake detection at the edge: IoT crowdsensing network},
  author={Enrico Bassetti and Emanuele Panizzi},
State-of-the-art Earthquake Early Warning systems rely on a network of sensors connected to a fusion center in a client–server paradigm. The fusion center runs different algorithms on the whole data set to detect earthquakes. Instead, we propose moving computation to the edge, with detector nodes that probe the environment and process information from nearby probes to detect earthquakes locally. Our approach tolerates multiple node faults and partial network disruption and keeps all data…

Toward Integrated Large-Scale Environmental Monitoring Using WSN/UAV/Crowdsensing: A Review of Applications, Signal Processing, and Future Perspectives
Fighting Earth’s degradation and safeguarding the environment are subjects of topical interest and sources of hot debate in today’s society. According to the United Nations, there is a compelling


The Earthquake Network Project: Toward a Crowdsourced Smartphone‐Based Earthquake Early Warning System
A nonparametric approach and a model‐based approach are introduced and their epicenter estimation capabilities are studied by means of data from simulated earthquakes and data from 49 earthquakes detected by the earthquake early warning system in Chile.
CrowdQuake: A Networked System of Low-Cost Sensors for Earthquake Detection via Deep Learning
CrowdQuake, a networked system based on low-cost acceleration sensors, which monitors ground motions and detects earthquakes, is presented by developing a convolutional-recurrent neural network model that ensures high detection performance while maintaining false alarms at a negligible level.
MyShake: A smartphone seismic network for earthquake early warning and beyond
It is shown that smartphones can record magnitude 5 earthquakes at distances of 10 km or less and develop an on-phone detection capability to separate earthquakes from other everyday shakes, which could be used to deliver rapid microseism maps, study impacts on buildings, and possibly image shallow earth structure and earthquake rupture kinematics.
The MyShake Platform: A Global Vision for Earthquake Early Warning
A human-centered design process produced key insights to the needs of users that have been incorporated into MyShake2.0 which is being release for Android and iOS devices in June 2019.
A Smart IoT Device for Detecting and Responding to Earthquakes
A stand-alone device equipped with a low-cost acceleration sensor and least computing resources to detect earthquakes is introduced and the developed earthquake alert device can successfully detect earthquakes and send a warning message to nearby devices, thereby enabling proactive responses to earthquakes.
A fresh perspective: Learning to sparsify for detection in massive noisy sensor networks
This work shows how a simple class of sparsifying bases provably improves detection with noisy binary sensors, even when only qualitative information about the network is available, and describes how detection can be further improved by learning a better sparsification basis from network observations or simulations.
The Quake-Catcher Network: Citizen Science Expanding Seismic Horizons
The Quake-Catcher Network (QCN) is a seismic network that implements distributed/volunteer computing with the potential to provide critical earthquake information by filling in the gaps between
Model-based Development of Self-organizing Earthquake Early Warning Systems
The presented paper focuses on the adopted and developed tool-based modelling and data base techniques used in that project, that are general and flexible enough for addressing similar prototyping use cases of selforganizing sensor-based IT infrastructures.
Earthquake Early Warning Starts Nationwide in Japan
When an earthquake occurs, a certain amount of time elapses before destructive seismic energy hits nearby population centers. Though this time is measured on the order of seconds, depending on the
Earthquake Damage Intensity Scaling System based on Raspberry Pi and Arduino Uno
A design and development of a low-cost damage intensity scaling system based on microcontroller and microcomputer to record the damage level intensity data, distribute a valid data, and send an early warning if the earthquake damages is severe is proposed.
