In the context of railway safety, it is crucial to know the positions of all trains moving along the infrastructure. In this contribution, we present an algorithm that extracts the positions of moving trains for a given point in time from Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) signals. These signals are obtained by injecting light pulses into an optica...


... DAS has the capabilities to be a useful measurement device for any applications that require many distributed sensing elements across long distances. For example, real-time tracking of train and wagon locations on a railway only requiring a fibre to be non-intrusively added along the train track [137]. DAS has also started to be used for power cable monitoring for detection of failures or damages produced by mechanical impacts [138] across their lengths. ...
