OptaSense provides real time, accurate and valuable data into the hands of our clients that allows rapid decision making and incident response. It is a single sensing system that provides simultaneous monitoring over complete rail or road networks enabling :

  • Traffic Monitoring and Control : Efficiently and economically tracking moving assets in real time
  • Safety and Security: Managing and monitoring authorised and unauthorised movement
  • Asset Condition Monitoring : Status of wheel flats, generators, pumps and machines
  • Infrastructure Monitoring : Managing rock fall , landslip, tunnel and bridge collapse scenarios

By utilising a client’s available fibre core, the OptaSense sensing system eliminates the need for trackside or roadside installations, power, copper cables and resource attendance along the infrastructure. The system utilises zero trackside or roadside equipment and power and further significantly reduces the need for maintenance personnel to work along the infrastructure.

A single roadway or rail network equipped with two OptaSense sensing systems can provide monitoring and protection of 100km in length and individual sites and systems can be easily networked to provide coverage over a client’s complete infrastructure.
