Locating, tracking and notifying on rockfalls in real-time
RockSpot is an innovative radar system able to locate, track and notify rockfalls, avalanches and debris flows in real time. This small yet powerful radar picks up tiny falling rocks at great distances. RockSpot is an integrative risk-mitigation device for the detection of rapid events, filling the gap in slope monitoring. A single rockfall event can be detected in near to real time and geotechs and working crews have immediate access to all event details.
All rockfall statistics are recorded in a database, making it possible to analyse each event and to create a proper risk zonation map for a convenient risk management and response strategy.
RockSpot never sleeps providing continuous monitoring night and day. Designed to withstand all weather conditions, its simple and compact design allows you to deploy and install the system everywhere!
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
- Real-time streaming
Built-in camera that provides streaming video of the monitored area, visible for all connected users.
- Low maintenance costs
No moving parts with a clean design, significantly lowering maintenance costs.
- Automatic georeferencing
Embedded GNSS ensures the automatic georeferencing of tracked rockfalls.
- Operates in all weather conditions
Immune to snow, dust and other environmental debris, RockSpot’s durable design enables it to operate in the harshest environments.
- Powerful software
All RockSpot systems are controlled by GeoCloud with the possibility to create multiple users with different levels of access.
- Coverage + Resolution
A single radar unit can cover an entire wall with high resolution, the coverage can double, with another sensor within the same configuration.
Users can access RockSpot data from the innovative GeoCloud platform, a web-based application. Optimised for mobile devices, GeoCloud gives you immediate access to all important data relative to the events. All slope movements are georeferenced and overlaid on site map.
To complete the information, an integrated livestreaming camera provides continuous imagery of the monitored area. The radar map is available in GeoCloud along with all the relevant statistics.
