A short review of distributed and multiplexed sensor technology, based on fibre gratings, is given. This is followed by details of more specific work in this area at the University of Southampton, particularly grating fabrication, distributed and multiplexed addressing and important practical aspects such as temperature and strain discrimination. The paper concludes with a short discussion of the problems that must be avoided in order to construct viable systems for engineering requirements.
