MetRoad Mobile is a mobile laser sensor for road condition and road friction detection. MetRoad Mobile can be delivered as a stand-alone probe or with an accompanying 4G / LTE enabled GPS datalogger.
Tow Hook Mountable
MetRoad Mobile is very ligh (~ 0.5 kg), so it can be easily mounted to the vehicle tow hook.
High Precision Patented Detection
Using patented infrared spectroscopy analytics, MetRoad Mobile deliveres superior road condition detection quality, as proven by numerous independent tests.
Road Condition and Friction Map Creation
Data from MetRoad Mobile are suitable for creation of high spatial and temporal resolution road condition and friction map, e.g. in Klimator RSI.
4G / LTE Modem with GPS Tracking
MetRoad Mobile can be delivered as a standalone probe communicating via RS 485 RTU Modbus, or it can be purchased with an industry grade data logger with GPS tracking and 4G / LTE data connectivity.
