At Roam3 Ltd we develop software and solutions for personal safety and communication. Our goal is to get important information - such as a warning of an impending earthquake or tsunami - to you, no matter where you are.
We have developed software for most types of computer (Windows, Mac and Linux) and many mobile platforms - from cheap Java-capable phones to iPod Touches to smartphones (both $100 Androids and $1000 iPhones). We are also developing low-cost warning devices that you can install at your home or office.
We successfuly deployed our Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) system to the Urban Search and Rescue and Geotech teams after the magnitude 6.3 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. The Canterbury region has allocated funding for a regional trial and we are now awaiting national approval.
A Japanese researcher has claimed that five seconds of early warning can give an 80% reduction in casualties. Our system can give 8-12 seconds warning to those in Christchurch for earthquakes like 2010's magnitude 7.1, and from 30 seconds to a minute or more for an Alpine Fault earthquake.
We've spent many years developing a warning system that will function as well as possible over New Zealand's existing communications infrastructure, so that it can be deployed at a price New Zealand can afford. We have investors interested in funding the set-up of a nationwide Earthquake and Tsunami Warning system with the intention of then "taking it global".
Please contact us for more information, to express support for an Earthquake and Tsunami Warning system in New Zealand, to trial the app, or if you're interested in working for Roam3.
