Komoline’s Highway Weather Station is used to observe surface and ground temperature, air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, wind speed and direction, horizontal visibility along traffic routes and other parameters that affect road traffic.
The weather station has a modular design for flexible system configuration and easy expansion when needed. It can be used in conjunction with a traffic monitoring system to monitor and regulate highway traffic. The compact, rugged station is easily installed by the roadside on any existing lighting post, traffic signals or buildings without halting traffic. It provides reliable measurements that are also accessible remotely.
Accurate highway weather information and forecasts are used by national and state highway authorities to ensure safe, efficient road transportation. Maintenance crews for highways use the information to anticipate weather-affected street and road conditions. They use the information to ensure that their personnel and equipment are prepared for rapid responses to highway conditions. Other benefits include maintaining peak operational efficiency on highways, and increased safety for the traveling public by improving road safety and accident prevention.
