Paper Abstract

Blue Road Research has designed, built, and installed fiber grating sensor systems onto bridges, and most recently into an asphalt and concrete highway test pad. The sensitivity levels of the fiber grating sensors are sufficiently high to enable detection of people standing on the bridge or highway. This paper briefly overviews the usage of these sensors for traffic monitoring.
