AN INVERSE SENSOR MODEL FOR EARTHQUAKE DETECTION USING MOBILE DEVICES

Thomas Collins, John P. T. Moore

Abstract

We describe a sensory framework to be used for the purposes of earthquake detection using minimal cost, accelerometer equipped, hardware units. Combining techniques from mobile robotics this model is intended to address the current issue in the field whereby high fidelity hardware units tuned to detect specific characteristics such as wave features and/or high fidelity event models derived from data analysis are required for such detection. In this paper we present and contextualise the architecture under construction in addition to outlining the salient elements of the problem we are addressing.
