System description TrackIce ice warning system
The wireless solar unit is equipped with metrological sensors that measures air temperature and humidity. In combination with information from the surface sensors hazardous situations can be identified and avoided. Due to the nature of icy roads, there may be need for multiple sensors; for example going from road to bridge or across several lanes on one road. The wireless part of the system makes deployment of such a system much easier than has been seen before.
The roadway sensor measures the road temperature. With information from the conductivity sensor can the amount of residual salt on the road be calculated. The wireless roadway sensor and conductivity sensor are battery operated and completely stand-alone.
