Real-time seismic assessment of buildings

Earthquake assessment and notifications for building functionality and occupancy decisions.

In seismic active regions, such as Wellington, quick assessment of the fitness for purpose of buildings and other important structures is crucial especially following a significant event. The decisions of functionality and occupancy depend on a robust real-time monitoring system.

Working for an award-winning provider of real-time earthquake notifications, the seismic sensors operate with ultra-low power sleep and threshold wake modes. A versatile triggering criterion can be applied to wake the senor to deliver high-quality data. A total event record also comprises both pre-event data and post-event data so that a more reliable seismic assessment can be conducted. Multiple wireless data transmission solutions are provided. Local storage ensures the integrity of the data especially during large seismic events producing high data flows.
