WP6 – TURNkey Multi-sensor unit and cloud-based FWCR Platform


The aims of this WP are:

  1. The development of a multi-sensor unit and the cloud-based FWCR (Forecasting – Early Warning – Consequence Prediction – Response) Platform for earthquake forecasting (OEF), realtime earthquake information for early warning (EEW), rapid consequences prediction and rapid response assistance immediately after an earthquake (RRE). The multi-sensor unit is a low-cost instrument based upon the Raspberry Shake 4D. Beside including its own sensors, the Raspberry Shake will also provide the functionality of a data collection and transmission unit. The collocated GNSS sensors will be connected to the Raspberry Shake. The use of the multi sensor/format acquisition system CAPS on the Raspberry Shake will allow the acquisition of the additional sensor data (e.g., from existing networks) via data acquisition plugins (to be developed within this project). This data will be transmitted via the same protocol, which will simplify the network infrastructure through the use of internet ports as well the infrastructure at the central data centre as only a single data archive has to be maintained. Access to the data will be available through web-based services.
  2. The seismic development framework SeisComP3 will be extended to serve the input data to the modules based on the scientific algorithms and receive the output information making the results available to the different clients as dissemination systems through web-based services.
  3. The implementation of the scientific algorithms into native SeisComP3 modules as applicable or at least offering an import/export functionality of results for the different modules by applying software wrappers.
