This system uses thermal cameras capable of measuring temperature to monitor volcanic activity on Mt. Fuji.
Volcano monitoring system
Indications of volcanic eruption can be detected by monitoring a volcano’s temperature.
The system is able to send notification of an anomaly when a temperature threshold determined at the operator’s discretion is exceeded. If there is an internet connection, notification of the detected anomaly can be sent to mobile terminals and other devices. This system can collect annual statistics based on recorded temperatures. It also carries out video monitoring and generates alarm videos and time-lapse videos from the detected temperature anomalies.
