Overview

As the automotive industry makes the transition from steel to composites and other advanced lightweight materials, engineers are facing new design challenges.  Sensuron’s fiber optic multi-sensing platforms can help remove uncertainty from designing with new materials.

By obtaining spatially continuous data along the entire length of an optical fiber, Sensuron’s technology provides engineers with accurate, comprehensive views of strain fields, 3D shape, liquid level, temperature distributions, and more. All of these parameters can measured simultaneously and in real time. This unique ability ensures maximum coverage of an application and the flexibility to resolve challenges across automotive organizations.

Facts

  • Multi-Sensing

    Sensuron’s platforms offer multi-sensing capabilities, meaning they can simultaneously sense multiple parameters.

  • Robust Platform

    Multi-sensing abilities, fully distributed data and access to real time information enables users to replace multiple disparate sensing technologies with a single platform.

  • Fully Distributed Data

    Sensuron’s platforms provide spatially continuous information giving customers a full picture of how their application is behaving.

  • Better Data

    Ten times more data than existing sensing technologies provides customers with the information they need to innovate and control processes.

  • Dynamic Environments

    Sensuron’s systems operate in dynamic environments enabling customers to perform the tests they need without using multiple technology platforms.

Examples
  • Having access to better data empowers engineers to detect design flaws earlier in product development, preventing costly failures after a product is launched. This ensures resources can be intelligently invested in projects that will be successful.
  • Legacy sensing technologies require a significant amount of time and expertise to install. Sensuron’s technology can be installed in less than one third of the time.
  • Standard data collection platform so dynamic and static tests can be conducted in a variety of environments.
  • Improve organizational efficiency be replacing multiple sensing technologies with a single Sensuron platform.
