FOSA commended the recent introduction of an infrastructure package by 31 House Energy and Commerce Committee members, the Leading Infrastructure For Tomorrow’s America Act, or LIFT America Act (H.R. 2741). Smart Infrastructure technology will spur continued economic growth.
The Fiber Optic Sensing Association, the US’ leading organisation association focused on fiber optic sensing, was one of 11 signatories of a letter requesting congress incorporate smart technologies in order to improve and transform infrastructure around the country.
Fotech’s trials in Calgary are one of the first instances where we have shown the value of DAS monitoring platforms by offering the transport insights smart cities will need.
If cities are serious about improving traffic flows…then technologies like [Distributed Acoustic Sensing] DAS have a key role to play in gaining intelligent insights, managing motorways and roadways, and managing transport networks more efficiently.
“FOSA is pleased to participate in ICSIC and then to continue the discussions at our own mid-year meeting in Cambridge,” said FOSA Chairman JJ Williams. “We believe fiber optic sensing will play a critical role in smart infrastructure construction around the world over the next few years."
