Earthquake Monitoring & Early Warning System

Zaryab Qazi, Mubashir Malik, Waseem Javaid Soomro


The aim of this project is to design the system that can detect P-wave before the first S-wave spike. Typically, P-wave travel 1.68 to 1.75 times faster than S-wave. Our proposed designed device consists of a pendulum type earthquake detection device which is interconnected with fault point finder, wireless alarm, GSM kit and automatic turn off system. when P- wave strike the pendulum it activates relay and send the pulse to stimulate the wireless alarm which can be install at any place as it detects the P-waves and can save human lives as they will be aware of how to deal with this situation.
