Abstract: Seismology is that branch of Science that deals with the study of Earthquake and Seismic wave through the body and Surface of Earth. Today, Detection of Earthquake is carried out everywhere but a need to predict it is urgent to prevent deterioration to both life and property! In this paper, we have given brief information about what is earthquake and designed a model to predict it. A brief introduction has been given to different types of seismic waves with their respective frequencies. The Accelerometer ADLX335 has been used in combination with Arduino Uno (ATMega 328) at the earthquake prone areas which are connected with the Data Centers by a wireless network. ADLX335 is capable of sensing vibrations from all the directions X, Y as well as Z. The ADXL335 is a low power, complete 3-axis accelerometer with signal conditioned voltage outputs and can measure static and dynamic accelerations. Programming for the controller is carried out using the software Arduino 1.8.3 By which we obtain the graphical data of seismic waves in X, Y, Z directions.
