Road Weather Sensors

About Road Weather Sensors

Our expertise is in designing, manufacturing, and installing sensors, data loggers, with telemetry to command center.

Weather instrumentation is just one tool that can be used to change driver behavior and potentially reduce accidents and save lives. High Sierra Electronics employs its road weather sensor technologies to activate ITS systems along the roadway to alert drivers of potential hazards.  We offer a variety of road weather sensors—fixed and mobile:

Fixed Road Weather Sensors

Additionally, our NTCIP-compliant, flexible communications interface, StormLink® RWIS processing unit utilizes the latest in data acquisition technology to provide a robust and open architecture platform.

Contact us about our full range of atmospheric weather and road sensors, including in-pavement and non-intrusive devices.

 

Mobile Road Weather Sensors

  • Mobile IceSight™ Road Weather Information System (RWIS) Surface Condition Sensor for vehicle mounting
  • Mobile Surface Sentinel™ for accurate surface temperature and air temperature from a vehicle

We continue to be at the leading edge of technology and solutions for ITS and RWIS applications.
