The road conditions can disrupt significantly the traffic performance. The significant reduction of average speeds determined by the icy road surface reduces the traffic flow capacity of the roads and the resulting increase in travel time imposes the need to act on-time to ensure even in the winter an efficient traffic flow, with an appropriate level of service and overall safety. The provisions of the Highway Code require the drivers to adjust their driving behavior to the specific conditions of the road. The manager of the road network, thanks to Frost-SMacs® is able to implement in a timely manner all the precautions provided by modern techniques of winter roads service.
• Dry • Damp • Wet • Ice • Snow • Frozen (verglas)
Through the probe of surface and depth.
Up to 4 mm by Microwave Radar Sensor
Through GPRS Modem
Through detection of conductivity depending on the water layer
Through the SMacs® Platform you can manage your data and be alerted in real time to the occurrence of any critical condition
Frost-SMacs® allows you to have a professional Station for roadsurface conditions’ monitoring, with the formula “Ready to Use”.
The monitoring of these measurements is generally possible only through complex systems as they involve different technological components , heterogeneous among them.
Our solutions are designed to be scalable, with central units of the highest level, but shared. This allows you to get them very cheap and build a fully scalable system.
The goal is to spread these tools to a growing number of organizations, including also the small towns that need to monitor just a single spot.
The device installation on the road is very quick, and once installed does not require any additional configuration, the station is already ready to use, and the related data can be found out through the web, choosing who to notify in case of need.
Is available the option to provide the station with photovoltaic panel or with battery backup for supply through public lighting.
Credentials to access to the web portal SMacs® with informations available for both the manager and for the ordinary citizen.
Real Time alert at specific thresholds.
Free access to the database to obtain the temporal trend of the monitored data for statistical purposes.
Possibility of integration with other modules and/or sensors maintaining the same platform
