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.
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.
Over the summer period we've worked hard to improve our sensor. With improvements in connectivity, battery life and user experience. We're now busy collecting and analysing observations from this winter season.
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.
