TrackIce Aviation

A wireless ice warning system for increased safety.

The TrackIce system measures surface weather conditions from any area within the airport which is important to monitor. With this information proper maintenance of road surfaces within the airport area can be ensured and accidents and delays avoided.

Battery operated and wireless

No need for installation of power- or communication cables. TrackIce communicates wirelessly and the sensors batteries have an operation time of up to 60 months without need of replacement or recharging.
The distance between sensors connected to the same central unit can be up to 100 meters.

Fast and easy installation

The focus during development has been to minimize installation time and effort to reduce total cost of ownership. Mounting a surface sensor takes approximately 15 minutes. The hole in the surface needs to be 90mm in diameter and 140mm deep. The sensor is mounted with a custom mounting tool which automatically aligns the sensor to the road surface. Finally the gap surrounding the sensor is filled with formable asphalt.

Cost effective measurements

Thanks to the cost effective deployment it is possible to build grids of sensors for a more precise, real time surface status. The DigiMesh technology based on Zigbee, brings benefits such as stability and self-healing networks. The sensors perform a synchronized sleep mode which improves energy efficiency and extends battery lifetime.
