Upgrade Urban Transport with the Internet of Things

Fotech’s Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) technology converts thousands of kilometres of optical fibres already in place in our cities into millions of acoustic and vibration sensors. DAS converts cables into a network of state-of-the-art sensors. This allows cities to send and receive information and simultaneously monitor city infrastructure, in real-time, at a much more detailed level, all while providing anonymity to its citizens.

Infrastructure

Cable Monitoring Offshore

Cable Monitoring Offshore

As the demand for green energy continues to grow, offshore energy operators have an expanding network of subsea power cables to monitor and maintain. With cable outages disappointing customers and costing operators a great deal of time and money, preventing cable failures, and quickly identifying and planning for the repair of damage is vital.  

Cable Monitoring Onshore

Cable Monitoring Onshore

Increasingly we depend on a connected world and is especially true for the power and communications cables we rely so heavily on. These cables are vulnerable to both accidental and malicious damage, as well as electrical and mechanical failures and interruptions leave customers disappointed and are costly to operators.
