IFE (In Flight Entertainment), thyristors trigger, MOST networks (Media Oriented Systems Transport) are examples of fiber optics systems integrated into airplanes, trains and automobile. Specific problems due to environment conditions have to be solved to design reliable systems.
it is a constant in transportation applications. Optical fibers have an inherent advantage due to their relatively light weight. However connectors need special design adapted to vibration conditions.
Fiber protection and cables must be adapted to ensure long lifetime particularly when small bending radius are necessary as well as risks of shock.
it can be a specific requirement in some application such as resistance to fuel, oil, acids, etc.
