The Earthquake Networkresearch project( aims at developing a smartphone-basedearthquake early warningsystem able to detect earthquakes in real time and to alert the population in advance. Smartphones are able to detect earthquakes thanks to the accelerometer on-board each device. When an earthquake is detected, users with the application installed are immediatly alerted. Since earthquake waves travel at a finite speed (from 5 to 10 km/s) it is possible to alert the population not yet reached by the damaging waves of the earthquake. For the scientific details about the project please refer to the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America journal at

The Earthquake Network app allows you to receive thereal timealerts of the earthquakes detected by the network, tomanually reportan earthquake you felt and to chat with other people during an earthquake emergency. When an earthquake is detected in real time near your location, the app can send aautomatic SMS and e-mailsto a list of contacts with your precise position in space. This can be useful forrescuingwithout the need of user interaction with the app. You can also send a request of help or you can say that you are fine with just one click. The app also shows information on the earthquakes detected by the national and internationalseismic networks.

Note that the information on earthquakes detected by national and international seismic networks is usually published with a delay ranging from a few minutes to many hours, depending on the seismic network.
