The Fiber Optic Sensing Association has been joined by ten other leading technology trade associations in urging Congress to fully incorporate smart technologies into proposals to improve and transform U.S. infrastructure.
Patent Advances Berntsen’s Focus on Enabling a Connected Infrastructure
Fiber optic sensing technology converts cables installed alongside transport infrastructure, such as railroads or highways, into an array of thousands of sensors which can detect acoustics, temperature or strain signals by using optical sensing techniques.
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.
This paper aims to contribute to the ongoing discussion about a national-infrastructure plan by highlighting three points relevant to communications.
