Paper Abstract

Blue Road Research is developing moisture-sensing technology that is capable of precision measurements of relative humidity and soil moisture content. Based on optical fiber sensor technology, the sensors are highly corrosion and EMI resistant and can be installed in locations where it would be impractical to insert a bulky conventional sensor. While the sensors are currently in the research and development phase, Blue Road Research has demonstrated the performance of the technology and is moving toward a commercially available product.
