Through gritting you keep your roads safe during winter times. However, gritting is expensive and the application of road salt has negative environmental impacts. Temperatures are higher in built-up areas and main roads, and bridges and overpasses are more prone to freezing. When you have more measurements points in your road network you can optimise your gritting operations. Reducing your environmental impact and freeing up budget for other priorities.
StreetSense is an extension to your winter conditions monitoring system. Its design limits installation and operational costs to a minimum. Allowing you to have 40 measurement points for the price of one conventional winter conditions monitoring system.
StreetSense measures the road deck temperature at two depths and the electrical conductivity (EC) of the road surface. This will tell you when the road surface is dry, moist or wet, and indicate the presence of road salt.
Each StreetSense pod records the road condition every 10 minutes, and relay the data to our cloud service. All your live and historic road data are conveniently presented in a web dashboard. You can export the historic data, and ingest live data into your existing IT systems using our API.

StreetSense devices are subjected to extreme conditions tests in a climate chamber. The sensor pods have survived blistering heat waves and freezing winter periods in operational conditions without a single device failure.
The road data were successfully benchmarked against data from a high-end conventional winter condition monitoring system under varying environmental conditions. The tests proved the StreetSense road data provide valuable additional insights in the distribution of road surface temperatures and road surface conditions in the road network.
