Fiber Optic Weight in Motion
Fiber optic used to monitor the weight of vehicles and to efficiently protect roads against overload
Fiber optic sensors are used to measure wheel and axle loads and to determine gross vehicle weights while traffic is flowing
Road damage and truck accidents are often caused by overloaded or incorrectly loaded trucks. Thanks to our expertise in developing customized and leading fiber optic sensing technologies, Fosina designed a fiber optic weight in motion solution to protect infrastructures and improve road safety.
Our fiber-optics based solution is designed to be robust and cost effective without the need to install the technology at a weighbridge where vehicles must be stationary.
Its performance is world-leading, including maximum load measurement of 18 metric ton per axle and accuracy of 5%.
The environmental qualification and smaller footprint of our FOWIM solution allow our client to deploy this technology globally, sustainably, and reliably.
