Comparison of Mexico’s EEWs

We regularly run benchmark analysis of the OpenEEW by Grillo Earthquake Early-Warning system (EEW) against other systems in Mexico. This year we were pleased to find that our system has been performing very well and below we share the results.

How IoT can save lives

The aim of an earthquake early-warning (EEW) system is to provide alerts to people, devices and automated systems that shaking caused by an earthquake is about to occur, ideally with an indication of the expected shaking intensity and time of arrival.

The Grillo journey

Before 2010 I had never seen the destruction caused by an earthquake, let alone felt the ground shake. I was the first guest to return to the Montana Hotel in Port-au-Prince Haiti, where weeks before 90 people had died.
