Fiber Optics’ Role in the Insurance IoT, Part II: Pipelines Leakage Detection

In the previous article we discussed how fiber optics can reduce insurance losses in the food industry through innovative monitoring of refrigeration units and related machinery. Temperature changes can also be a reliable indicator of pipeline leaks and other dangerous conditions in the oil and gas industry. Continuous temperature monitoring across long distances makes fiber optics ideal detecting pipeline issues before they become catastrophic allowing for early preventative actions and substantial risk mitigation.
