On April 26, Institute of Care-life announced upon the 10th anniversary of the sending of the first early earthquake warning (EEW) message in China, Xiaomi, Huawei, OPPO and vivo, four major domestic mobile phone giants, all began to provide earthquake warning service with their products, extending mobile phone and TV EEW to the whole nation and finally covering the “last tough kilometer” in the delivery of disaster warning information within seconds for billions of users. mobile phone earthquake Warning Service
According to experts, embedding the EEW function into the operating system would enable users to receive EEW messages without installing any APPs, marking an innovative breakthrough in the disaster waring industry. The technology would transmit EEW information as the highest priority to minimize communication latency and reserve more time for life.
What will the combination of earthquake early warning technology and smart television bring to us? mobile phone earthquake Warning Service
Chengdu Hi-tech Institute of Care-Life of China, which focuses on the research and development of earthquake early warning technology, has given the answer. On 22nd May, Chengdu Hi-tech Institute of Care-Life and Beijing Kuyun Interactive Technology Co., Ltd. signed a cooperation agreement and officially launched China’s first earthquake early warning system on the internet.
After the system is activated and once an earthquake occurs, the large screen of the internet installed with Kuyun module will send an early warning before the arrival of the earthquake, reminding users to avoid risks and thus reducing casualties. Wang Tun, director of Chengdu Hi-tech Institute of Care-Life, believes that the earthquake early warning system will provide risk-avoiding information services to hundreds of millions of people.
In fact, the launching of the earthquake early warning system on the internet screen is an extension of the existing television earthquake early warning service. Since the occurrence of the devastating earthquake in Wenchuan of Sichuan province, the earthquake early warning technology developed by Chengdu Hi-tech Institute of Care-Life and its partner has achieved breakthroughs in China’s earthquake early warning technology from scratch, making China the third country in the world with earthquake early warning capabilities after Mexico and Japan.
Previously, users were able to receive earthquake early warning information on mobile phones and televisions through mobile apps and broadcast television networks equipped with earthquake warning systems. The cooperation will realize the “integration” of earthquake early warning system and the smart television.
Sichuan province, located in the southwest of China, is an earthquake-prone area. At the time of the 2008 devastating earthquake in Wenchuan, Wang Tun was working as a postdoctoral fellow in theoretical physics at the Austrian Academy of Sciences. After seeing the heavy casualties caused by the earthquake, he chose to return to China and established the Institute of Care-Life in Chengdu Hi-tech Zone. On April 25, 2011, the R&D personnel received the earthquake early warning signal for the first time by SMS. On April 15, 2012, they opened the TV early warning function for the first time on TV where a window would automatically pop up and start the countdown before the earthquake wave arrives.
On May 13, 2019, World Meteorological Organization (WMO) hosted the “MHEWC-II” in Geneva, Switzerland. As the only representative speaker from China, Wang Tun introduced the progress made in China’s multi-hazard early warning technological achievements during his keynote speech, which attracted the attention of representatives from more than 80 countries. “Multi-hazard early warning technology is one of the things that China is doing. Sichuan Provincial Key Laboratory of Earthquake Early Warning and Chengdu Hi-tech Institute of Care-Life are also coordinating the resources of more universities to carry out technical research on integration of multi-hazard technology,” Wang Tun expressed. mobile phone earthquake Warning Service
At present, Chengdu Hi-tech Institute of Care-Life announced that the TV earthquake early warning system has been extended to 13 cities and prefectures in Sichuan and covered 79 districts and counties which account for 60% of Sichuan earthquake areas.
