Clearview Intelligence - Smart Mobility Solutions

Environmental

Environmental considerations such as noise, air quality, weather status and road surface temperature can be useful data streams for road network operators. Data is used to help understand the wider impact of a live road network on the environment or equally the effect of environmental factors such as weather on the road network and driver behaviour. Clearview offers a complete solution of non-invasive environmental sensors which can be used in a variety of different applications to report directly to a data collection platform for remote user analysis.

Metsense 2D Road

Metsense 2D Road unit

The Metsense ‘2D road’ system distinguishes between 8 road surface statuses: dry, moist, wet, deep water, slush, snow, bright ice, and dark ice.

The system, which is comprimised of a camera, infra-red flasher and a controller unit, can all be mounted on one droppable pole located next to a running lane and is used to monitor the road surface. This view gives an indication as to the current status of the road at that location. The system delivers the below data stream in real time (every 6 minutes):

– Measures road surface condition
– Distinguish between standard road surface conditions
– Surface friction level
– Road surface temperature from -40°C to +70 °C
– An image of the first running lane

All data is saved on a cloud platform and is available to road network operators for historic evaluation of the weather conditions at that location.

Features

– Measures road surface condition
– Distinguish between standard road surface conditions
– Surface friction level
– Road surface temperature from -40°C to +70 °C
– An image of the first running lane

Benefits

– Provides data analysis in real time (every 6 min)
– Sends data to a cloud platform for remote analysis
– No obscuration impact from fog or rain
– Can be used as a control terminal for additional sensors such as Metsalt and humidity sensors
– Installed on a droppable pole for full, easy on-site access
