Istanbul—the largest populated city in Europe—is considered to be a likely candidate to experience a major earthquake during the next few decades. The recent earthquakes are a reminder for potential hazard.
Istanbul has a population of over thirteen million. This megacity was exposed to at least five damaging earthquakes between 15th and early 19th centuries. It is now considered likely to experience a major earthquake. Compelled by the level of seismic risk and as a result of increased awareness of the earthquake threat, preparedness of the cities infrastructure is of paramount importance.
At QuakeLogic, we create smart cities where hospitals, schools, residential stock, commercial buildings, bridges, dams, tunnels and other infrastructure are all equipped with sensors having advanced technologies. Our structural health monitoring (SHM) system powered by artificial intelligence utilizes the sensors data to create unique earthquake risk management solutions.
We provide meaningful and easy-to-understand information immediately after an earthquake. This timely and critical information helps stakeholders such as government authorities, emergency responders, disaster managers as well as building and business owners to plan their role in making the people and their structure safer.
Our mission is to ensure peace of mind for people of megacities like Istanbul after an earthquake.
We believe in resilience of infrastructure where everyone lives in a safe and sustainable environment. Together we can make Istanbul a smart city.
