About this event

As a leading supplier of sensor technology for railway applications, Frauscher continuously monitors and investigates innovative sensor technologies to improve detection and monitoring with less effort and lower costs. Having completed research and tests with different technologies based on fibre optic sensing for several years, the company has incorporated Distributed Acoustic Sensing into its portfolio where an acoustic signal from the fibre is sensed and classified to represent specific events and activity on and near the track. This platform technology has many railway applications , including non-vital train tracking, asses condition monitoring (rail break and flat wheel and others) and various security applications. Frauscher wants to share its experiences  to date and the vast potential of applications of this technology in the railway of today and the future.
