Are you close to an instant transaction on your cell phone? Through the earthquake that was felt this Tuesday afternoon in the central zone of Chile, Many are surprised at how quickly this reminder reaches their mobile devices. A message has been sent MAS devices include the preliminary magnitude and location of the epicenter of the earthquake. How does this new Google system work?
Android motion alert system is a free service that detects earthquakes around the world and can alert Android users before an earthquake begins.
In California, Washington, and Oregon, Google collaborated with the ShakeAlert® team to broadcast radio broadcasts equipped with their system. ShakeAlert uses a network of 1,675 seismic sensors to detect tremors and analyzes that data to determine the location and magnitude of an earthquake. The ShakeAlert® system then sends a signal to the Android Earthquake Alert system, which sends an earthquake alert directly to Android users.
Outside of the United States, the company uses the most common motion detection technology. All mobile phones contain tiny accelerometers that can detect vibrations and speed, signs that an earthquake may be occurring. If the phone detects something it thinks could be an earthquake, it sends an earthquake detection signal to the nearest location where the tremor occurred. The minister then compiles the information from many telephones to find out if there are earthquakes.
This method uses the world’s more than 2 billion Android devices as mini-seismographs to create the world’s largest earthquake detection system; The phones detect the vibration and the speed of the shaking and alert Android users in the affected areas accordingly.
The detected motions can also be searched in a Google search. you just have to look “Move near me” to get more information about any seismic activity around you.
Android has these two notification types designed for earthquakes. Both types of alerts are sent only in the event of motions of magnitude 4.5 or greater.
