Alejandro Cantu is a Telecommunications and Electronics Engineer and the founder and CEO of SkyAlert, Mexico´s most advanced Early Earthquake Warning System which has made a global trend.
The Early Earthquake Warning System, developed by SkyAlert, identifies an earthquake up to two minutes in advance. Given the constant approach speed of the tremor (four kilometers per second), the signal reaches the receiver with a time advantage between 30 and 120 seconds, depending on how far the epicenter is. SkyAlert App and hardware devices alert with sound, vibration and text messages depending on the intensity of the quake.
SkyAlert qualities makes it an efficient tool to adjust the management of evacuation protocols, greatly minimizing the damage that would be generated by the quake. Currently SkyAlert has managed to reach more than two million users between their different platforms, which positions it as the company best known of its kind worldwide, which has also earned publications in prestigious sites focused on business news sites, recognition technology and innovation.
With SkyAlert fully-scalable technology, the company is gearing up to launch in California this year, followed by Chile, Peru and Colombia, all of which lack Early Earthquake Warning Systems of their own.
