City of Solingen shares weather and street data with its citizens
The "City of Blades" Solingen is very extensive in terms of area and topographically diverse. Especially in summer, temperatures in the city area can fluctuate significantly.
A reliable database allows the city authorities and its technical service department to take effective countermeasures, for example by cooling the streets, planting areas or start selective gritting operations in winter.
The data for this is provided by the NIRS road sensor and the Lufft WS800 weather station. The latter records a comprehensive range of atmospheric parameters such as solar radiation, air temperature and humidity, lightning, precipitation, etc. in one housing. The compact design allows for easy installation and maintenance.
