An important roto-traslative movement and erosion phenomena characterize the site of Folkstone. This events interest an important railway line, a road and some houses. For real-time monitoring of the slope settlements, a Tilt Array system was installed in January 2017.
The site is instrumented with two chains 12 m long, equipped with 24 high resolution multi-parametric tilt sensors Tilt Link HR 3D H.
Control unit queries nodes at defined time intervals and saves them into a SD card. Data are transmitted with UMTS connection to the elaboration centre, where an automatic software elaborates them. Results are available on a web platform in a few minutes.
