The general move towards better connectivity of urban areas, gathering data from the environment, and its consequent analysis and utilization is what experts label as a “Smart City.”
Optical fiber plays a crucial role in the building of future cities. Optical fiber is not just being used to connect the city, its residents, and its many devices.
Fiber optic sensing can provide the city with a nervous system that collects information from the outside environment.
For example, traffic flow monitoring, temperature monitoring, strain monitoring.
Such a smart infrastructure can change cities to a more sustainable area to live in.
Why Fiber Optics
Almost no maintenance over the whole lifetime.
No electrical power at the measurement point needed if used as a sensor.
Monitoring (50 km and more) of remote locations and objects, if used as a sensor.
Resists High Pressures and High Temperatures
Resists extreme temperatures from -269 to 700+ degrees
For Harsh and Explosive Environments
Resistant to corrosion, lightning, etc.
Immune to EMI
