Focus Sensors aims to position itself as a partner to infrastructure. It provides a range of solutions to specific problems (object location, event detection) with a range of algorithms. But more than that it seeks to empower system integrators and infrastructure owners with a new understanding of their infrastructure gathered from the vibrations emerging from it.
Focus Sensors’ architecture is a data platform that allows customers to integrate vibration information with that from other sensors in the network. Using the architecture, customers or third party app-developers can develop their own algorithms for the specific infrastructure and local environment.
For example, to the owner of a suspension bridge, Indus provides vibration information about the bridge not available from other DAS systems. The architecture is a platform that can make sense of that vibration information, integrate conventional sensors such as strain sensors, weather gauges and traffic sensors to provide a total picture. The owner can then develop algorithms and alerts that are meaningful and useful.
