Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) applications in Smart Cities will see rapid growth due to the real value that can be extracted and applied, not tomorrow or in 10 years, but today. This technology will save US taxpayers millions of dollars, reduce traffic congestion and improve safety for all citizens. Terra Sound is a cost-saving, anonymous solution for obtaining real time traffic data as compared to invasive traffic data sources such as cellular carriers and on-vehicle sensors. Elysian Fiber’s unique surface application for fiber optic cable furthers the value proposition of fiber applications. Terra Sound and Elysian Fiber present the future of building smart cities.
