Earthquake & Tsunami Warning System

Recommended Posts

Earthquake and Tsunami Warning System (ETWS) introduces a means to deliver Warning Notification simultaneously

to many mobile users who should evacuate from approaching Earthquake or Tsunami. Mobile user who received

Warning Notification is able to know a threat is approaching or already happened nearby. Then the user is able to

determine where and when to evacuate according to delivered Warning Notification. Mobile phone is a kind of the

closest media for people. This system helps people to prevent from disaster situation or mitigate damage.

The characteristic of this service is the need of quick and optimised information delivery. Currently, it is not possible to

know beforehand the fact that an Earthquake is imminent.

The Japanese government intends to create Earthquake early detection systems, which is called Earthquake Early

Warning (EEW) System, during 2007 and expects that mobile operators study the feasibility of realizing a system for

delivering Earthquake Early Warning information to mobile phone users.
