RWIS in Geislingen, South Germany helps to make the traffic safer

In the South German City Geislingen, a road weather system has been providing important data on road weather conditions and environmental conditions since the beginning of 2016. A non-invasive NIRS31 ground sensor, a WS400 compact weather sensor and a camera are the most important components of the station. In addition, a MARWIS mobile road weather sensor is also in use, which provides additional information directly from the patrol vehicle.

The mobile as well as stationary measured values are evaluated and visualized with the help of the ViewMondo monitoring software from the Lufft IT partner Informatik Werkstatt. The data are used for the organisation and optimisation of winter service carried out by the city's road maintenance depot. The project was handled by MICKS, which was completely integrated into Lufft in January 2018.

The customer is very satisfied with the station and is planning another similar system, which will soon be started and also carried out by the same project team from Lufft.
