Recently, we attended this year’s Smart City Expo in Barcelona, an exciting event that brings together leading technology companies, policy-makers and entrepreneurs to help shape the smart-cities of the future. While we were there to showcase our industry-leading Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology, it was a great opportunity to catch up on some other intelligent innovations from across the globe. The expo touched on the most important issues facing cities today, with a focus on five main tracks: digital transformation, urban environments, mobility, governance and finance, and inclusive cities….
Using solutions such as DAS, fiber optic cabling can be transformed into a network of highly sensitive acoustic sensors – innately ‘listening’ to the activities around them.
