As the trials with the City of Calgary and Pacific Western Transport kick-off with success, Dr Robert Ferguson and Fotech work together to push the boundaries of DAS monitoring technology.
“We have installed what’s called a distributed acoustic sensing system along the entire route of the autonomous vehicle and we’ve repurposed an oilfield instrument…We can track, with high precision, the location of not only the autonomous vehicle but anything else that’s moving around close to the autonomous vehicle.”
Rob Ferguson, an associate professor in the department of Geoscience
“It is great to see the collaboration of so many great institutions for the benefit of the people of Calgary…The innovations that are taking place here are setting a great precedent for how different technologies can work together with DAS to improve the efficiency and safety of our cities”.
Chris Shannon, CEO Fotech Solutions
