30 May 1995 Power-over-fiber sensor network
Author Affiliations +
We present the characteristics of a prototype all-fiber sensor network that is useful in structure-health management and distributed sensor data acquisition. In this network, each remote sensor node is powered over a fiber by a laser in the base station. The sensor data are sent back to a base station through a different fiber. Issues concerning power consumption per node, data rate, fault-tolerance, packaging, cost, and network expandability will be discussed.
