Abstract

The earthquake detector is a complex and expensive device. It is necessary to design a simpler and cheaper earthquake detector for common use. Our research employs the ability of Android-based mobile device to design a minimal cost detector for sensing the earthquake. Therefore, as the earthquake occurring, the mobile device can detect the earthquake and issue a warning alarm to the phone owner. At the same time, a rescue messages including disaster location, earthquake level, and related information to the disaster center. Experimental results show that the proposed method can achieve the usage of disaster rescue.
