LUNITEK – Soluzione IoT per il Monitoraggio e il preallarme degli spostamenti

GEA SYSTEM – IoT solution for monitoring and early-warning of displacements

Based on:

  • Networks of GNSS L1 low-budget sensors
  • 3-D displacements with millimetre level repeatability


Application fields:

  • Landslides, subsidence, co-seismic deformations
  • Critical infrastructures
  • Deformations due to human
    • Activities: Excavations, injection/extraction of natural gas



  • GEASYSTEM nodes are composed of lightweight, compact, low energy consumption, single-frequency GNSS stations, power supply modules based on photovoltaic panels and 868 MHz wireless interfaces for the transmission of data
  • Receivers installed at a monitoring site form wireless mesh networks, transmitting in real-time GNSS raw observations and telemetry data to a gateway node, equipped with internet connectivity. Network data are collected at a server where a specific SW computes displacements with millimeter level repeatability
  • A dedicated dashboard (client application) allows the User to display data on a map and on graphics with time series of 3-D displacements and telemetry data
  • GEASYSTEM can be configured to send alert e-mail in case of system malfunctions or when specific User defined displacements thresholds are exceeded, thus allowing forecasting of possible dangerous events
  • Publication of displacements and telemetry data is made through REST web services allowing the integration of measurements in pre-existing and
    custom dashboards
