Transportation Monitoring

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.


Through advanced Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), OptaSense provides fiber optic transportation monitoring services that include:
  • Traffic Monitoring and Control : Efficiently and economically track moving assets in real time
  • Safety and Security: Manage and monitor authorized and unauthorized movement
  • Asset Condition Monitoring: Monitor status of wheel flats, generators, pumps and machines
  • Infrastructure Monitoring : Manage rock fall , landslip, tunnel and bridge collapse scenarios
By utilizing a client’s available fiber optic network, the OptaSense transportation monitoring technology eliminates the need for trackside or roadside installations, power and copper cables and resource attendance along the infrastructure. The system utilizes 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.


Our DAS applications include real-time traffic, incident and condition monitoring for roadways, as well as cable theft, landslides and faulty train/track monitoring for railways.
