Hyderabad-based National Geographical Research Institute and Earthquake Research Institute of the University of Tokyo will also be part of the project.

Governor ESL Narasimhan underscored the need for researchers to develop technology (sensors) to cover infrastructure project areas in the event of disasters.

“If we can develop some sort of sensors to cover up such important projects, it can help in speedy relief. You (researchers) must understand that natural disasters may come once in a while, but at infrastructure projects people are working round the clock,” he said.
