Road Monitoring

Observator offers a wide range of sensors and weather stations to monitor the condition of the road in real-time. Intelligent active and passive sensors for flush-mounting into the road or runway surface. Nowadays more and more interest is shown for non invasive measurements using the optical principle. The sensors are used on highways, bridges, local roads, bicycle roads, industrial terrains, container terminals and runways.

The following variables can be measured: road surface temperature, waterfilmheight, freezing temperature, road condition (dry/damp/wet/ice/slush/snow/residential salt/freezing/friction (grip)/ice percentage), visibility, present weather, precipitation, snow depth, air temperature, relative humidity, barometric pressure, solar radiation, windspeed- and direction.
