Slope ALARMS ‘Lite’: Low-cost sensor development

A low-cost Slope ALARMS sensor is under development at Loughborough University. The aim of the project is to establish the viability of a very low-cost sensor that can warn of impending landslides and be deployed extensively in low income countries to protect vulnerable communities.
