Shape Sensing
Luna's exclusive shape sensing technology can track the position (location) of an optical fiber along its entire length. This "smart fiber" is minimally intrusive, virtually weightless, and can be used to monitor the dynamic 3D shape of a structure to which it conforms. It can also be embedded or attached to a surface to monitor the dynamic 3D shape independent of temperature or load from the environment.
