Code Sample: Earthquake Detector

Published: 11/06/2015   Last Updated: 09/20/2017


This earthquake detector application is part of a series of how-to Internet of Things (IoT) code sample exercises using the Intel® IoT Developer Kit and a compatible Intel® IoT Platform, cloud platforms, APIs, and other technologies.

This code sample is available in C++, Java*, JavaScript*, and Python*.

From this exercise, developers will learn how to:

  • Interface with and sensors using MRAA and UPM from the Intel® IoT Developer Kit, a complete hardware and software solution to help developers explore the IoT and implement innovative projects.
  • Invoke the services of the United States Geological Survey (USGS) API for accessing earthquake data.
