Abstract

We believe it is extremely important to quickly communicate information - on matters such as the extent of the damage and the safety of affected persons - when a large-scale earthquake or other disaster occurs. However, if electric power is lost, communication will be impossible with existing information networks. For this reason, we have built an Ad-Hoc network in Shiojiri City enabling communication even if electric power is lost due to a large-scale disaster. Using this Ad-Hoc network, we are building a sensor network to forecast landslide disasters. Among the various sensors installed to the sensor terminals, this paper reports in particular on observation results with EC sensors.
