Paper Abstract

The digital fiber optic sensing system used for real-time remote measurement of the amount of oil in a tanker is described. The system consists of a fiber optic (FO) interface-temperature complex probe, a driving mechanism for the FO probe, and a microcomputer-based integrated data processing unit. It has been proven by the analogue experiment of the system that the gauging of the amount of oil is accurate within +/- 0.2%.
