Abstract

Cloud technologies and edge (Internet of Things) devices and services have been widely utilized to improve safety and community resiliency. However, in regions with low Internet penetration or even in well-connected communities temporarily 'off-grid,' accessing and coordinating these tools can be a challenge. The Conflict Zone volcano monitoring application explored in this paper may be considered an extreme case. The authors argue that the successful approach assessed in this paper may apply not only to uncommon circumstances. This paper focuses on the use of the Internet Backpack technology as a core part of a cloud to edge communication and information systems for monitoring sensors for early detection of CO2 levels in the city of Goma, in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The authors describe testing, implementation and challenges in the mountainous terrain encountered and overcome with the Internet Backpack, in cooperation with the Goma Volcano Observatory (OVG).
