Project Introduction

Natural disasters often cause significant disruption to public utilities and services. The loss of communication network is especially problematic when disasters are taking place, because data is crucial either for analytics or strategic planning for rescue or evacuation etc.

Thus, a backup telecommunications channel is essential in this case. For some disasters, such as landslides or flash floods, their triggers could be monitored in mountainous or rural areas quite far away from towns and where the electricity from the main grid is not an option. A low-power and long-range communication channel is required as well.

Therefore, in this project, we propose a relay station network as a solution to such situations. The relay station network consists of an array of relay stations whose function is to forward the received data to the next station until the data reaches the destination (base) station. As for the realization of the proposed system, we will show how to apply it with two applications: the landslide monitoring system and the intelligent remote monitoring system for dam safety.
