Abstract

Climate change is mainly caused by human activities. Consequently, natural disasters such as flooding, storm, and drought are attacking people at high frequency and extreme damage. Besides, many megacities have been facing the rapid urbanization problem of carbon emission, noise, dust, and temperature that seriously impacts on the living conditions of people. In this paper, we design and implement a monitoring system for early detecting and warning the natural disasters and the environmental threats of the rapid urbanization in Quang Nam and Da Nang provinces in the Central Vietnam. The system will sense, communicate, store, process, and display the important information including precipitation, wind speed and direction, water level, and landslide/earthquake in Quang Nam and CO2 emission, temperature, dust, and noise in Da Nang. The experimental results can help the local government and citizens with better management of natural disasters and environmental threats for smart cities.
