Modified Explore-and-Pick (EnP) refers to an improved or adapted version of the original Explore-and-Pick heuristic algorithm. The modification is specifically tailored for addressing the challenge of placing Distributed Fiber Optic Sensors (DFOS) with concurrent sensing capability.


An Efficient Approach for Placing Distributed Fiber Optic Sensors with Concurrent Sensing Capability

We propose an efficient approach for placing distributed fiber optic sensors (DFOS) with concurrent sensing capability. It consumes 5.7% to 9.5% fewer sensors than that using DFOS without concurrent sensing, for covering the same network.
