WINTERSENSE

Real-time & Non-invasive Sensing of Road Surface Temperature

See Demo

What we do

Wintersense provides the hardware and software required to deploy a dense network of road surface temperature sensors, empowering managers with up-to-date data to make the tough decisions regarding winter road maintenance.

Real-Time

See observations just moments after they are sensed.

Non-invasive

Remotely sense road surface temperature with contactless infrared technology.

Wireless

Wi-Fi communication and battery power allows for rapid deployment without a cable in sight.


The low-cost nature of our sensors allow for more sensors to be deployed, thus increasing the spatial resolution of your observations - ideal for initialising and verifying route-based forecasts.

Current Status


Wintersense sensors

After an exciting winter season we are now busy analysing the collected data. It is fascinating to see data at such a high spatialtemporal resolution. We are also working hard to improve our sensor, with a particular focus on connectivity, battery life and user experience.

Who we are


Wintersense has been developed by meteorologists at the University of Birmingham. A department with a long history of research into winter road sensing and forecasting. The team is keen to see dense networks of wireless road surface temperature sensors contributing to the ever growing Internet of Things.
