Lufft introduces MARWIS mobile road weather information sensor

Tuesday 4 March 2014

At this year’s exhibition Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014, the German measurement and control technology company Lufft will present its latest device development. With the mobile road weather information sensor MARWIS presents the long-established company an absolute world premiere.

The sensor for mobile road weather information collects weather such as the road surface temperature, dew point, water film height, the road conditions (humidity, snow, ice and frost) and grip (friction) as well as other environmental data. The measured data can be sent via Bluetooth, for example on an iPad or iPhone directly to the vehicle.

All metrics are evaluated from the mobile device or tablet in real time and delivered via cloud data to the visualization software SmartView by Lufft. While driving, MARWIS measures meteorological data and road condition information 100 times per second. At a driving speed of 80 kilometres per hour, the mobile sensor records the desired data every 20 centimetres. The condition of the road surface does not matter in the measurement. Whether freezing ice, snow or rain: MARWIS distinguished reliably and accurately to the desired data.

From the 25th to 28th March 2014 visitors of the Intertraffic Amsterdam can take a first impression of MARWIS on the Lufft booth 11.532.

Observator obtains exclusive right to supply all road monitoring sensors of Lufft at the Dutch Market, including the new MARWIS mobile road weather information sensor.

The road monitoring sensors will add to Observator’s wide range of meteorological and hydrological sensors and systems. .
