Real-time inclinometer using accelerometer MEMS

By D. Hanto, B. Widiyatmoko, B. Hermanto, P. Puranto and L. T. Handoko


A preliminary design of inclinometer for real-time monitoring system of soil displacement is proposed. The system is developed using accelerometer sensor with microelectromechanical system (MEMS) device. The main apparatus consists of a single MEMS sensor attached to a solid pipe and stucked pependicularly far away below the soil surface. The system utilizes small fractions of electrical signals from MEMS sensor induced by the pipe inclination due to soil displacements below the surface. It is argued that the system is accurate enough to detect soil displacements responsible for landslides, and then realizes a simple and low cost landslide early warning system.Comment: 3 pages, Proceeding of the International Conference on Physics and Its Applications for Environmentally Friendly Technology and Disaster Management (2010
