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. After researching and testing different fibre optic based technologies over several years, the company has incorporated Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) into its portfolio. With DAS, an acoustic signal is detected using an optical fibre and then classified into specific events and activities on and near the track. This technology has many railway applications, including non-vital train tracking, asset condition monitoring and various security applications. Frauscher would like to share its experiences to date and the vast potential of the applications of this technology in the railway of today and the future.
