MOBILE COLLECTION OF WEATHER DATA IN REAL TIME WITH MARWIS
MARWIS is a mobile road weather information sensor that measures road conditions and environmental data both reliably and professionally. Directly installed on the vehicle, the intelligent sensor takes measurements 100 times per second – at any place and any time.
MARWIS REVEALS THE SECRETS OF ROAD WEATHER CONDITIONS
Ice, snow and aquaplaning – these critical road and runway conditions sometimes make life hard for drivers and pilots. With MARWIS, you get full transparency with what is happening below your tires. As an important decision-support piece for winter services, airports, public transport, shipping agencies and many others, it provides relief in daily work with great responsibility. With its 100 measurements per second, MARWIS makes roads and runways safer and allows for more efficient fleet management.
EVALUATION OF MEASURED DATA WITHIN SECONDS
MARWIS collects weather data as temperature, relative humidity, dew point and road conditions (dry, moist, wet, ice/snow, chemical wet). Moreover, it determines ice percentages and calculates the weather-related surface friction. It transfers the data measured continuously and in real time via Bluetooth to a tablet, smartphone or an alternative output device in the driver cab. By means of a data cloud, the MARWIS App is able to forward its measurement values to an operations center, where operations managers can track patrol tours – with the ViewMondo management software, for instance.
ROBUST AND WEATHERPROOF THROUGH TRAFFIC
Our engineers adapted the robust measurement unit to the requirements of mobility so that it can withstand even extreme conditions. MARWIS copes with polluted streets and different surface layers (asphalt, cement) without special calibration, and resists vibrations during demanding usage in cold winters. Aggressive chemicals (e.g. liquid defrosters) don’t matter to the sensor. By means of the detachable enclosure, the sensor can be easily removed, cleaned and reinserted.
ALL ANGLES COVERED: QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION AT VEHICLES
In just a few simple steps, the MARWIS mobile road sensor is attached to the vehicle, with a measuring distance between the road and optics of one or two meters. Due to its compact enclosure and low weight of only 1.7 kilograms, attachment is quite simple.
A suitable protective housing keeps dust and dirt away from the sensor, while the robust metal case ensures great durability.
