There are some measurement systems available by using multiple strain gauges and accelerometers, however their power delivery and data transmission require a careful insulation under such a high voltage condition. This limitation could lead to some extreme scenarios, such as dewirement, thus causing a widespread traffic disruption.
This innovation aims to address the above challenge by exploiting the ideal insulator nature of the optical fibre itself: it transmits operational data using light rather than electrical current and therefore is intrinsically safe under high voltage conditions.
