Wireless Sensor Network Solutions for Hydrological Risk Prediction



Our sensors work in conjunction with physical modeling to produce predicted risk scores for landslides and flooding for a given area. The system functions as an early warning system in the short term and a risk management tool in the long term.
Our sensor system is integrated with Amazon Web Services so you can access the data from anywhere, at any time. Both the raw data and Palmos risk insights are available to the end user.
We use advanced data encryption and the LoRa network protocol to maintain the security of the information our sensor systems provide.


Palmos grew out of a Smart Cities Design Challenge entry from three graduate engineers at Columbia University. After winning the challenge with an early-stage prototype of our low-power sensor design in April 2016, Palmos won seed funding to develop a first-generation product. We are now realizing that goal.

We envision a world where national governments and international aid organizations have on-demand access to environmental data insights that notifies them before a disaster occurs so vulnerable communities can be better protected.

We develop context-specific single-hop, low-power, high density wireless sensor networks to detect critical hydrological and other environmental signals for predictive risk modeling.
