2DRoad is the world's first non-invasive weather camera which offers a full multi-lane description of the road with a detection area up to 6 x 6 metres and a 64 x 64 = 4096 pixel detection resolution. 2DRoad distinguishes between 7 road surface statuses: dry, moist, wet, slush, snow, bright ice, and black ice as well as estimates a road surface friction.
2DRoad can be mounted on any pole or portal, using stock clamps. Average installation time is <4 hours.
2DRoad scans the whole road profile and remotely detects 64 x 64 = 4096 road condition and road friction points.
Integrated Camera & Pyrometer
2DRoad includes a camera that offers a visual output of road conditions and a pyrometer that measures road surface temperature.
Full Multi-Lane Description
2DRoad fuses these data and offers a full contextual description of road conditions in the whole road profile. 2DRoad can detect on an area up to 6 x 6 metres.
Data Logging Functionality
2DRoad can be extended with other RWS Sensors. Temperature, Humidity, Pressure (THP) and THP + Wind Speed & Direction Sensors have already been integrated and tested - and are sold via this website.
7 Road Conditions & Accurate Black Ice Detection
2DRoad distinguishes between 7 road surface statuses and indetifies the most dangerous black ice condition with extremely accuracy.
Clear Visual Outputs in the Cloud
2DRoad presentation layer, 2droad.cloud, shows all data in a clearly visual format.
Predominant vs. Most Dangerous Status
An indication of the selected state based on the predominant or alternatively the most dangerous road status. The intuitive visual information leads to better informed maintenance decisions, increasing winter maintenance savings.
