DESCRIPTION:

The Mobile IceSight Pavement Surface Condition Sensor - Model 5435-00 is a remote mobile surface condition sensor that provides real-time surface condition and atmospheric information from a moving vehicle. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor's standard, open-architecture data output includes air temperature, relative humidity, surface temperature, six distinct surface indications and a surface friction coefficient.

The Mobile IceSight Pavement Surface Condition Sensor was developed for winter maintenance professionals who demand up to the second information about their roads and environment. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor's compact and rugged design can withstand the harsh environments of winter maintenance vehicles that makes it ideal for fleet management. You can have real-time surface and atmospheric data when and where you need it. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor integrates into existing your Road Weather Information System (RWIS) network to fill in gaps between fixed stations. Integrating the Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor into existing Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) and Maintenance Decision Support System (MDSS) systems with the sensors open-architecture data output makes it easy. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor has flexible mounting solutions with a small form factor and 3 to 15 ft (0.9 to 4.6 m) measurement range. Thermal mapping capabilities with the Model 5437 Mobile Processing Unit (MPU) and Glance subscription are available for the Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor is an excellent tool for vehicle fleet route optimization.

The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor uses laser and infrared electro-optical technology to detect hazardous ice, snow and wet conditions and surface grip without embedding any sensors in the pavement. Pavement surface states reported by the Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor include dry, damp, wet, slush, snow and ice indications. Pavement surface grip is reported as a friction coefficient on a scale of 0 (worst) to 1 (best) and in simple terms to the motorist as good, fair and poor. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor measures road temperature by a highly accurate non-contact infrared temperature sensor. Air temperature and relative humidity are measured separate from the main Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor housing to allow for accurate readings with quick response time to changing atmospheric conditions.

Integrated Wi-Fi, as a Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor standard, is used to provide the user a web based data dash display compatible with any standard web browser on a computer or smart device. The Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor's dash display background colors change based on surface condition, giving the user instant feedback without needing to look directly at the display. In addition to the data display, a java applet is provided for Mobile Pavement Surface Condition Sensor auto calibration and data logging from a java enabled computer.

When coupled with the Model 5437 Mobile Processing Unit (MPU) and Glance subscription the Mobile Mobile IceSight Pavement Surface Condition Sensor provides an AVL solution with a comprehensive data display and management tool.
