Abstract:

The goal of this project is to develop a low-cost tsunami warning system for use in impoverished regions where tsunamis pose a threat. This paper details the design process of a pressure sensor used for tsunami detection. We begin by first considering the desired sensor parameter and range of depth in which the experiment will be conducted. The signal conditioning circuit is incorporated following the pressure sensor selection. The concept of the experiment used to collect and analyze the data necessary for tsunami prediction is presented in detail. Paper provides a discussion of the possible modification and improvements to the finalized pressure sensor model as a platform for future applications of this work. Finally, conclusion provides the overview of the pressure sensor design and gives insight for the continuation of this project for the next semester.
