Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions discusses the need to improve transport infrastructure for cities today….Combining cutting-edge photonics, AI and edge computing, new sophisticated distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) platforms can interpret this acoustic data.
There is enormous potential for our DAS solutions to enable city authorities to improve traffic flows and gain new insights to manage road and transport networks better. [Fotech Solutions] partnered with the city of Calgary.
When it comes to smart cities, DAS is set to be a vital part in the technology puzzle.
Due to its flexibility, DAS is likely to be one of the first ‘live’ installations of true smart city technology.
FOSA applauds Transportation Technology Center, Inc. study Fiber Optic Availability and Opportunity Analysis for North American Railroads. “The findings of this Federal government study confirm that fiber optic sensing can make significant cost-effective contributions to enhancing rail safety,"
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association (FOSA), the world’s premier fiber optic sensing trade association, released details on more than 1,300 installations of distributed fiber optic sensing (DFOS) around the world. The November 2107 data reflects the largest representative sample ever published.
