Wet Roads … They’re NOT Always Wet

SignAlert™ Ice Detection is an Advanced Warning System utilizing Surface Temperature that is measured by an accurate, non-contact infrared temperature sensor.  Air temperature and relative humidity are also measured achieving higher levels of detection accuracy and driver notification.

 


The USDOT Federal Highway Administration data lists an average of 1,836 deaths, 136,309 injuries and 536,731 crashes per year due to snowy and icy roads.  The figures below represent a 10 year average between 2005 and 2014.

201,341 Crashes represents 4% of vehicle crashes

55,942 Injuries represents 3% of crash injuries

739 Fatalities represents 2% of crash fatalities

151,944 Crashes represents 3% of vehicle crashes

38,770 Injuries represents 2% of crash injuries

559 Fatalities represents 2% of crash fatalities

174,446 Crashes represents 4% of vehicle crashes

41,597 Injuries represents 2% crash injuries

538 Fatalities represents 2% crash fatalities

SignAlert Ice Detection

  • System alerts vehicle operators or pedestrians of hazardous icy road conditions by locally or remotely flashing SignAlert Warning Signs.
  • Provides surface temperature, air temperature, relative humidity and dew point measurements that will collectively be used to maximize detection accuracy.
  • SignAlert Systems are triggered directly from a Non-Invasive Road Surface Condition Sensor.
  • Can be used to trigger other signs within a configured network.

Network UnitsNETWORK SYSTEM
A deployed Surface Temperature Sensor is placed at the ingress to a bridge deck or over pass, communicating road surface conditions to a network sign placed up to 1000 feet away.  This notification triggers an LED Enhanced Advanced Warning Sign, advising drivers of icy road conditions ahead.
