The concept of smart materials and structures is the idea of mechanical, electrical and civil engineering structures which can react or adapt their characteristics according to signals received from embedded sensors. Such structures must be able to provide detailed information on their internal status during the manufacturing stage, and continuous indications of their physical state in real time, later in service.

You have to be better informed In order to get smarter decisions. Sensors can provide that information. Optical fiber sensors are able to withstand extreme temperatures, pressure, humidity, chemicals, and can to be embedded where it is impractical to run direct wiring or in locations unsafe for humans.

Lamda Technology can provide photonic systems for permanent, remote and distributed monitoring of asset performance and management in various domains of industry, civil engineering and environment.
