As severe climate conditions and natural disasters are often unpredictable in occurrence and magnitude , companies that rely on the stability of weather and ground conditions (e.g., irrigation, mining, etc.) need a reliable method to detect potentially dangerous events and generate alerts.
Current surveillance systems are based on humans that go through the territories to determine whether the terrain is stable or fragile; these methods are outdated and do not add value to the business . If a disastrous event occurs, then the company lacks an integral solution to mitigate losses. However, existing technologies do enable natural disaster detection methods to become more precise over time.
The novel solution is a method to record events and store results on magnetic discs, tapes, or even in the cloud, including the location of an affected terrain provided via global positioning system (GPS) or general packet radio service (GPRS). The method can also utilize online information of the terrains, using drones and the 'uStream Video' tool to film, monitor, and project a view of an event.
Once recorded, the user can play the video back to gain an understanding of the event (e.g., the conditions before a fire). Developers can then apply cognitive analytics to the recordings and then design and build programs to automate this continuum-sensing task, through circuit and sensors.
