It helps users control concrete curing conditions; manage the max- imum internal and differential temperature in mass concrete placements; and, measure concrete maturity versus time. Real-time information delivery eliminates the need for trips to job sites to collect data or samples for testing, which improves quality, minimizes delays and reduces on-site labor cost. LumiCon consists of a simple, ruggedized and recoverable sensor cable that collects distributed temperature and moisture data along the length of the sensor cable to gen- erate a 3D map of data from any concrete slab. The sensor cables can be retrieved and reused in multiple concrete projects; are easy to install without any changes in the site workflow; and, have been designed for seamless operation in cold and hot weather conditions. The system reduces the labor cost for sensor installation and data collection, and offers cloud-based data management and analytics powered by embedded LTE connec- tivity and a web-based dashboard. "LumiCom has been built on innova- tive fiber optic sensor technology, proven for heavy-duty applications," says Aoms Technologies President Amir Azhari. "We offer [Internet of Things] platforms to help indus- tries collect mission-critical data to make informed decisions, streamline workflow and reduce operating and capital expenses." — Aoms Technologies Inc., Mississauga, Ontario, 888/401-2667; Fiber optic sensor gauges concrete curing conditions, maturity
