These days, the increasing amount of infrastructure such as bridges and roads, buildings, and houses has passed their estimated service life. In step with this reality, maintenance checkups of existing infrastructure have become an important social concern. In addition, real time measurements of damage to infrastructure and structures is not popular as a way of preparing for the occurrence of earthquakes or other types of disasters.
TAIYO YUDEN's small, easy-to-use, high-precision optical displacement sensors, which can be installed in existing infrastructure or structures, can detect, for example, vibrations and displacement in real time, enabling various measurements such as structural or passing vehicle monitoring, and predicting future changes that may indicate danger or affect people's lives.
