Seminar on Landslide at IIT Mumbai
Encardio-rite participated and sponsored the 4th Indian Landslide Congress in 2017 organized by the Department of Earth Sciences, Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, Powai, Mumbai.
Encardio-rite published a paper on “Online Web Based Monitoring of Landslides using Geotechnical Instrumentation and Automatic Surveying Techniques” authored by Mr. Amod Gujral, Managing Director and Mr. Prateek Mehrotra, Vice President Technical. Mr. Amod Gujral at the Congress also gave a talk on the subject.
The paper describes the advanced landslide monitoring solutions developed by Encardio-rite comprising of field proven and rugged geotechnical instruments, advanced automatic surveying techniques and a public cloud based web data management system.
The field sensors for measuring parameters such as subsurface deformations, pore water pressure, anchor load, rainfall, surface crack movements etc. are connected to the field data logger through an SDI-12 bus, thus minimizing the cabling costs and increasing system’s reliability.
Deployment of the robotic total station to automatically monitor 3D prisms at critical locations adds to the comprehensiveness of the data collected and system’s integrity. The data collected by the field instruments and sensors, transmitted using GSM/GPRS network, is readily available in real time for the different stake holders who may be located in any part of the world.
Automatic notifications of alarming conditions through e-mails or SMSs are recorded by the system. The network is cost effective and value-wise is just a small fraction of what is spent later in rescue operations, removing debris and rehabilitation.
