Nokia Delivers Landslide Monitoring System in China
Wednesday, March 18, 2020 | Comments

Nokia is delivering a landslide monitoring and early warning system for highways operations management company BGIGC Group. The system is in partnership with China Mobile/CMCC Guangxi.

Deployed on the G75 Lanzhou–Haikou Expressway, one of the main highways in Guangxi province, China, the system has undergone extensive trials during which it successfully prevented adverse impact to road users following a landslip in March 2019.

Using the system, expressway management receives real-time reports on changes in ground conditions and incline stability across highway slopes. Upon indications of a potential landslide, the system immediately notifies highway management personnel by short message service (SMS) or phone call, enabling appropriate action to be taken. A 4G eye camera deployed on the highway slope simultaneously monitors landslide status for staff members.

“Immediately upon deployment, the Nokia IoT (internet of things) solution demonstrated the value it can deliver,” said Yang Jirong, enterprise applications expert at CMCC Guangxi. “As a leading operator, we are highly committed to enhancing expressway safety for all road users with 5G technology, and this project is a major step forward in that goal.”

The landslide monitoring and alarm system is based on the Nokia IMPACT IoT platform, comprising end-to-end Nokia gateways, sensor nodes and software.

Implementation of expressway slope safety evaluation, using monitoring and early warning systems, is one of the main objectives of the China Ministry of Transport’s 13th five-year plan and will make a major contribution to road safety. The pilot project was listed among 30 excellent recommendation cases in 2019 by the Chinese Safety Committee of the Ministry of Transportation.
