LightSense Project
📣The 6th and final #LivingLab of the #Lightsense project was successfully held on 26th June, at Cyprus University of Technology (CUT). The consortium partners presented their final data and conclusions and discussed ways how to manage the process of putting together the final report. 📌 Georgios Panaretou from CUT initially presented machine learning algorithm for detection of potential threats to infrastructure integrity by analysing data received from the Distributed Acoustic System (DAS). The dataset used to train the machine learning algorithm which include 15 different types of sounds and the two approaches for classifying these sound categories were also discussed. The presentation was followed by a discussion on the use of this methodology for other applications. 📌 Professor Kyriacos Kalli (CUT) presented CUT’s BOTDA – Brillouin Optical Time Domain Analyzer – the first developed in Cyprus. The system setup up was analysed in a detailed manner to explain each step of the development process along with obstacles met and solved. The final successful operation was demonstrated. The presentation concluded with a discussion on the possible future work towards improvements and product commercialisation.📌 Professor Michael Komodromos from Frederic’s Research Center suggested a method to speed up BOTDA’s measurements. The objective of this work was to examine possible ways to lower the computational complexity in determining the Brillouin Frequency Shift (BFS) in Brillouin Optical Time-Domain Analysis (BOTDA) systems. The method proposed uses Lorentzian data fitting and modification improvements are proposed that improve convergence of the algorithm. The presentation concluded with an extended discussion for future work on possible ways towards further improvements to the method, mainly using fewer points in the fitting by exploiting the symmetry of the BGS. 📌 Andreas Theodosiou (Lumoscribe) presented a solution for Improving the spatial resolution of BOTDR measurements using signal processing treatments for static and dynamic Brillouin distributed sensing.Finally, Antonis Kolokasis from CERA presented the policy consideration outcomes. Specifically, CERA identified the standards, policies and responsible organizations for the development and implementation of fiber optic standards and policies, internationally and in Cyprus. The event concluded with partners agreeing to coordinate and exchange all information needed to make the process of developing the final report as smooth as possible. As the #Lightsense project came to an end, we are excited to see the outcomes contributing towards the development of a smart and sustainable future. Through the fruitful collaboration of all partners and the dissemination of distributed sensing to private stakeholders, we are convinced that the exploitation of these novel technologies can be achieved in many industries, with substantial economic and environmental benefits.👩‍🏫📊📉Coordinator: Cyprus University of Technology / Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο ΚύπρουProject PartnersBar-Ilan UniversityCyprus Computer SocietyFrederick University CyprusCyprus Energy Regulatory AuthorityΑρχή Ηλεκτρισμού ΚύπρουAlgolysis LTDLumoscribe LTD – It’s all about sensingResoloupe ltd#research #distributed #sensing #livinglab #innovation #temperature #vibration #strain #monitoring #fibre #smartgrid #lightsense See MoreSee Less
