Paper Abstract

We are presenting a novel shock sensor device based on multimode optical fiber. This device is an elementary fiber sensor tailored for the transportation industry, and especially the automotive industry, allowing detection of shocks and the measurement of the deformation of surface external of the system. We also show how a plurality for such sensors can be combined in order to detect and characterize the shock in order to trigger an adapted response from the vehicle for added safety.
