Smart LightwAve Multi-modal Distributed Acoustic Strain and Temperature sensor (SLAM-DAST)

Project description

Smart cities get a boost from cutting-edge, long-distance sensing

Sensing changes in parameters is essential to everything from health and tire pressure to smart homes and industrial applications. Distributed fibre optic sensing (D-FOS) technologies take this one step further. The 'distribution' aspect refers to the ability to read information not at specific locations but all along the fibre optic cable, like discrete versus analogue sampling for electronics. The EU-funded SLAM-DAST project is integrating two cutting-edge D-FOS technologies combined with a low-cost fibre optic cable to enable remote monitoring of a vast amount of information at distances up to 100 km. The system promises to boost the capabilities of exciting new applications for smart cities and more.
