Android phone will detect earthquake

Google on Tuesday announced an Android-based earthquake detection feature that will court smartphone users about the earthquake. The Android phone will become a mini seismometer, with millions of Android phones connected to it, which together will form the world's largest earthquake detection network.

Google said they are beginning with an earthquake warning in California, as it already has a good seismometer-based system. In the coming years, you can use Android phones in many states and countries. You can expect earthquake alerts. According to the statement issued by the company, all smartphones have a micro accelerometer, which can sense the signals that indicate earthquakes.

If the phone indicates something like this getting if an earthquake catches up, it sends it to the earthquake detection server with location information. The server collects information from multiple phones to determine if there is indeed an earthquake.
