Abstract

Earthquake is type of natural disaster which is usually very fast and unpredictable. When this kind of disaster happens, people will usually panic and exit or run away from the facilities. Without proper guide and safety instructions, this might result in unwanted consequences, such as accidents, injuries or leaving behind family members or officemates. Due to this problem, a disaster (earthquake) awareness system is being developed. The system will at first calculate the amount of vibration in the soil of the earth. This calculation will be approximated to the Richter scale and if it is significantly large, will send safety instructions in the form of messages displayed at LED signboards available at important locations in the vicinity of the building. With this awareness system, if an earthquake happens, people will know what to do and where to go even if they are not trained with the disaster drill exercises.
