Surface Systems, Inc. Integrates Ice Camera Technology with RWIS

Surface Systems, Inc. (SSI®), a member of Quixote Transportation Technologies, Inc. announces the integration of ice camera technology with Road/Runway Weather Information Systems (RWIS). Ice camera technology, when used with RWIS, provides an amazing advancement in how customers view data and make important winter maintenance decisions.
SSI.gifThe ice camera is an active, eye-safe laser-based sensor that can classify surface conditions over a wide target area in any lighting conditions.

The ice camera is non-intrusive and designed to be mounted directly on existing RWIS sites or other existing structures. The ice camera can be used to monitor and manage road conditions, track the quality of ice and snow removal services and monitor bridge decks. Further, the camera can be used to reduce costs by optimizing chemical application.

The camera scans a 20 degree-by-30 degree field of view, returning a detailed digital image with various conditions (ice, snow, wet or dry) highlighted in color. The rugged design allows year-round operation and images are returned day or night in all weather conditions. Each image can be sent to a monitoring station or stored for later retrieval. When customers add the ice camera to an RWIS, images can be displayed by SSI’s SCAN Web® software.
