Imagine for a moment a road, sidewalk, or floor that can "feel" what is walking or driving on it or tell you where there's a pothole or obstacle. Imagine a building or bridge that can warn you when its structural integrity is compromised, or a pipeline that can tell you when and where a leak has occurred, all in real time. With fiber optic sensing, this is only scratching the surface of what's possible.
Fiber optic sensing turns a fiber optic cable into one long continuous sensor capable of detecting sound, vibration, temperature, strain, and other phenomena, all with precise location. This effectively enables the fiber to act like a "nerve" wherever the fiber is installed.
