The project will use a fiber optic sensor embedded in a protective mat to detect a moving vehicle and classify it. The fiber optic cable will work as a microbend sensor and be designed to provide recordable attenuation levels based on properties of the vehicle. An algorithm used by a signal processor will be created to automate the determination of vehicle type.
