HAPPY MONITORING implementation – Hochvogel peak
The data thus collected is automatically stored on a server in Switzerland or on the territory of the monitoring. This information can be consulted on the Internet in a personal space ordered by an XLM request. An application allows you to view the results in real time and create an interactive report with the summary of the measurements in graphical form. No scientific software is needed for calculation.
Anticipating risk is fundamental for us. In partnership with the Technical University of Munich, our team is monitoring the volatile “Hochvogel” peak.
“Hochvogel”, perched at 2592m, is a peak in the Allgäu Alps that is threatening to separate, and its 260,000 cubic meters of rock and rubble could fall into the valley. The national border between Germany and Austria passes over the summit, but the southern summit area is in danger of collapsing, “it’s only a matter of time,” according to Professor Michael Krautblatter of the University.
HAPPY MONITORING has already been used on the Hochvogel since October 2020. So far it has proven to be very reliable and can deliver excellent results despite the many difficult circumstances: on the one hand, the altitude difference between base (in the valley) and rovers of almost 1500m with a baseline length of <5km and on the other hand the climatically unfavorable situation on the mountain (thunderstorms, temperatures).
