Frauscher Sensor Technology USA exhibited at the ASLRRA (American Short Line Railroad Association) 2019 Connections Convention, April 7-9 in Orlando, Florida. Representatives from Frauscher’s Technical Sales and Engineering teams were on hand to showcase wheel detection and axle counter products.
Fiber optic sensing technology converts cables installed alongside transport infrastructure, such as railroads or highways, into an array of thousands of sensors which can detect acoustics, temperature or strain signals by using optical sensing techniques.
Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions discusses the need to improve transport infrastructure for cities today….Combining cutting-edge photonics, AI and edge computing, new sophisticated distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) platforms can interpret this acoustic data.
The North American Frauscher team proudly states that every Class 1 freight railroad in North America has installed the company’s sensors.
In a short time, [Frauscher Sensor Technology has] successfully achieved positive recognition of the company and products within the US and North American railroad markets.
