We present some of the recent results of an R&D program on scintillating fibers readout by position-sensitive photomultiplier tubes. Considerable improvements have been achieved compared to the previous studies, in particular in detection efficiency (>95%) and linearity. In addition, a detailed study on two-hit resolution enabled us to confirm the possibility of reconstructing double-hit events in real-time by using the delay-line method.
