 Google to build the worlds largest earthquake detection network, every mobile phone is a detector


The earthquake detection network system is based on the ability of Android operating system to send earthquake notification to people in time. As a result, the mobile phone will become a small seismograph and connect with other Android devices to form a complete detection network.

All smartphones have built-in small accelerometers that sense earthquakes, the company said. If the smartphone detects a vibration, it will send a message to Googles server, which will integrate information from different devices and then determine if there is a real earthquake.
