ASELSAN MIDAS-(R)ailway Multi Purpose Intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor rewarded with the "Best Innovation Award 2020" in big companies category in 6th ERCI Innovation Awards - using DAS technology to collect acoustic data and analyze it to detect intrusions on the railway
Acoustic Sensing - A train’s vibration pattern as it progresses its journey is picked up by lineside sensing equipment, usually a fiber optic cable....Installations exist worldwide, including on Network Rail and London Underground.
Fiber optic sensors, which work on the basis of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), provide comprehensive access to a wide range of information surrounding the railway....These solutions allow an overview of the entire railway network, including rolling stock, to be formed in real-time.
Over several years, Frauscher has supplied various projects in Taiwan with innovative, tailored solutions – based on their product’s unique capabilities
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.
