Distributed Acoustic Sensing data can help create the smart cities of the future – and there are huge benefits to incorporating DAS into city management systems. However, one of the questions we get asked the most is how DAS integrates with existing data collection methods and analysis platforms
Omnisens SA, the Swiss supplier of distributed fiber optic sensing systems and instruments, has announced the release of ODAS, its new family of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) interrogators.
Based on research that concludes the commercial viability of distributed acoustic sensing in conduit, the sensing industry can enjoy the same robust conduit pathway benefits and advantages with highly sensitive commercial DAS implementation.
smart city technology....DAS could be used to identify locations where there are concentrations of people above a certain threshold in real-time…could also be used to ensure key amenities are not overwhelmed….Crucially DAS data is completely anonymized
If big data is the new oil, as it has often been said, then Fotech offers the right tools to dig for more of it and feed the insatiable needs of tomorrow’s smart cities....the untapped potential of distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) for smart cities
