Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) can be used to detect landslips early in advance.
I cannot say much from perspective of geology but from computer science prospective this technology has been in use almost 10-15 yrs.
Amrita university 3 yrs back implemented wireless sensor network to avoid landslip with help from Italian scientist from European Union. here is the link of factsheet of the project
Even its used across all calamity of early detection sensor have sensing unit which is equipped with desired hardware for example if we want to measure pressure, or heat or and movements of rock or vibration etc… Second unit if relay unit which is used to relay signal to nearest chip or base station. third component is Energy source like battery. here sensor needs to work long time before being recharged hence lost of energy harvesting technologies are used to recycle energy. and Piezoelectric material…
