Seismic technology is slowly taking over Toronto as more people are embracing seismic detection systems within their homes, offices, institutions, and industrial sites. The local government has also made enough strides in the right directionin enhancing security using the technology. Now, illegal dumping, prison breaks, and unauthorized access to military access routes are slowly being dealt with through the use of these intelligent and convenient systems.
It seems like seismic sensor technology is always undergoing improvisation to cater to more needs in the Toronto market. Here, we have highlighted some of the latest in seismic technology worth knowing.
- Use Of Seismic Detectors To Curb Illegal Dumping
Local authorities in Toronto have since faced the challenge of illegal dumping of waste in and around the city. Despite numerous threats, awareness campaigns, and other strategies about the negative impacts of mass disposal, some members of the publicjust can’t just stop illegal dumping. As a result, mosquitoes and a plethora of other pests and pollution became part and parcel of the Ontario capital.
This is slowly being phased out, thanks to seismic intruder systems at these dumping sites. The system is efficient, affordable, and cost-effective. Once the sensors are placed beneath the surface in target areas, they can pick up dumping of waste in the form of seismic waves. The data is then processed, analyzed and if indeed it fits the “illegal dumping” profile, it sends real-time alerts to specific cameras so that the actions of the perpetrators can be captured immediately. This gives the authorities sufficient time to document the event then ultimately seek to pin down the perpetrators in the court of law.
- Underground Sensors For Prisons
Even with top-notch security systems around a prison, cases of prison breaks still dominate the world. For the most part, inmates escape through underground tunnels dug by them or outside parties. Other conventional security systems aren’t able to detect activity under the ground and alert relevant authorities. One of the latest developments in seismic technology Toronto is the installation of underground seismic sensors in these correctional facilities. What the system does is create an invisible fence around the entire facility which can easily detect digging, jumping over, foot traffic, and moving vehicles by unauthorized personnel. If an inmate or an outsider makes an attempt of creating motion activities around the sensors, an alarm will go off and alert authorities of the escape.
- Fuller Spectrum
The seismic acquisition takes place on both simultaneous-source and broadband methods. The latter tries to capture the fuller spectrum for high and low frequencies to enhance data inversion and imaging. This goes a long way in making the system more precise and accurate at the most important stage – data interpretation.
Toronto is undoubtedly a hotbed of technological advances and seismic innovations aren’t an exception. We look to the future with the hope of the introduction of even more powerful seismic intruder systems. Who knows, perhaps soon, the system will be able to actually capture with intruders and perpetrators rather than make mere alerts only.
