Field Tests of Impulsive Acoustic Event Detection, Localization, and Classification Over Telecom Fiber Networks

We report distributed-fiber-optic-sensing results on impulsive acoustic events localization/classification over telecom networks. A deep-learning-based model was trained to classify starter-gun and fireworks signatures with high accuracy of > 99% using fiber-based-signal-enhancer and >97% using aerial coils.

Template Matching Method with Distributed Acoustic Sensing Data and Simulation Data

We propose a new method to detect acoustic signals by matching distributed acoustic sensing data with simulation. In the simulation of the dynamic strain on an optical fiber, the optical fiber layouts and the gauge length are properly incorporated. We apply the proposed method to the acoustic-source localization and demonstrate the method localizes the source accurately even under the layouts which include the straight optical fiber for the sensing points with the large gauge-length settings.

Optical Fiber Sensing Technology Visualizing the Real World via Network Infrastructures – AI technologies for traffic monitoring

Optical fibers have a sensing function that captures environmental changes around the fiber cable. According to the recent technology evolution of optical transmission and AI, the application of the fiber sensing has expanded and visualization accuracy has improved. We have proposed to monitor the traffic flow on the road using the existing optical fiber infrastructure along the road. In this paper, we propose a traffic flow analysis AI algorithm with high environmental resistance and show the evaluation results of traffic monitoring.

A Study on Traffic Flow Monitoring Using Optical Fiber Sensor Technology

Traffic conditions of the highway, Ya traffic volume meter CCTV Because it is observed in the spot, such as the discovery of traffic disturbances which deviates from the observation spot it may be delayed. The traffic flow has a problem from the point observations data indirectly order to be estimated, the capture accuracy of trending and regional circumstances change in time series. Therefore, we focused on the optical fiber sensing technology that utilizes the existing light off Aibainfura highway, actually measuring the travel vibration of the vehicle from the infrastructure as a continuous line, overhead grasp the traffic flow from the traveling locus We are working to. This time, tried traffic flow observation and the estimates of the average speed in the Tokyo, Nagoya and New Tomei Expressway. A result, the demonstration zone 45km in a traffic flow observable real time, succeeded in average speed calculation equivalent to the existing traffic meter, this technology has shown promise as a bird’s-eye technique wide and real-time traffic flow.
