Distributed moisture and leakage sensing in buildings

The purpose of the project is to evaluate the technical and commercial feasibility of an innovative idea and method for moisture and leakage measurement with distributed fiber optic sensor technology. The technology has the potential to monitor large areas and lengths in buildings and structures in a cost-effective way.

The expected result is that it will be clarified whether the proposed idea for a fibre-based moisture and leakage sensor is technically feasible and commercially relevant. If this is the case, it is expected that we have identified then needs for further development. This will be the foundation for upcoming R&D projects. Performance goals: Performed lab test showing that the sensor is sensitive to moisture, shown that installation in buildings is feasible and that a low-cost alarm system is possible and investigated technical and commercial applicability.
