Based on the principle of Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS), Frauscher Tracking Solutions (FTS) form a new generation of live tracking. They enable applications for train tracking, asset condition monitoring and security requirements by using only one single solution, on and near the tracks. It is possible to detect passing trains, wheel flats, rail defects, footsteps on or near the cable, works such as sawing or digging, rock falls, animal herds and more in real-time.
To increase data quality, FTS can be combined with proven axle counters and wheel detection systems. Thus Frauscher can provide its customers with massively expanded options.
