Starting from March 9, 2023, the Faculty of Physics of the West University of Timișoara has its own functional seismometer, installed in the Raspberry shake worldwide network.

The equipment is located in the basement of the building on Bd. V. Pârvan no. 4 and allows real-time monitoring of events, providing data on seismic activity.

With the help of the Raspberry Shake seismometer, seismic monitoring becomes easy to understand and access. Through the online platform made available, localizations, data exchanges and national and international collaborations can be carried out within the seismic monitoring educational network.

The Western University of Timișoara thus joins the educational seismic network, by integrating the R3687 seismometer into the Raspberry network. 

The Raspberry shake platform can be accessed using the link:


On the map of Timișoara (at the Station view menu) the UVT seismometer has the name 3D, and the one from the Timișoara Seismological Observatory (OST) is marked with 4D. It should be noted that the seismic activity monitoring systems at the Timișoara Seismological Observatory and the one at the Western University are the only ones in the western part of the country.
