Grillo has created an IoT-based earthquake early-warning system (EEW) that generates alerts quickly and accurately. EEWs provide citizens with seconds or minutes of advance warning before shaking is felt.
Grillo’s EEW has been operational in Mexico since 2017, outperforming the national system SASMEX.

We believe in open source as a way to accelerate social impact. Through collaboration, more communities will adopt and advance this technology.
The core components of the Grillo EEW are now available as OpenEEW.
The Mexican EEWs We regularly run benchmark analysis of Grillo’s Earthquake Early-Warning system (EEW) against other systems in Mexico. This year we were pleased to
“This earthquake alarm can predict when tremors will strike”
“A solution like Grillo has been the dream of the engineering community”
“Grillo could save thousands of lives”
“Grillo’s sensors collect microdata on effects of shaking which could better assess risk of damage”
