Surat, Feb 2 (ANI): Engineering students in Surat have developed an earthquake-sensing robot that can detect the onset of an earthquake three hours in advance.

The recent earthquake in Haiti prompted, students of the J. T. Engineering College to develop the 'Earthquake Detector Robot'.

"I have made a robot called Earthquake Detector Robot. When the earth starts vibrating, the robot senses it before and informs about the danger in advance. The information would help avert any unfortunate destruction caused by the earthquake," said Hiren Patel, a student who made the Earthquake Detector Robot.

Two transmitters and one receiver have been fixed to the robot. The transmitter's circuit is kept inside the earth, which senses the temperature of the earth, water and also the water level, and through microwave frequencies it transmits the information.

After sensing the temperature and water level, the robot, with the help of micro-controller senses the vibration in the earth and gives off an alarm.

The detecting robot can be operated from every corner of the country with the help of the Internet. (ANI)
