LoRaRTS is a wireless sensor to monitor the temperature of the road surface.
This system is highly useful during winter in places where air temperature and weather conditions determine a potential danger to drivers due to the formation of ice on the road surface.
LoRaRTS is a small device installed underneath the road surface that checks the temperature continuously.
Data are sent to the server through the LoRaWANnetwork.
This smart IoT sensor is completely wireless and battery-powered. This makes the installation remarkably easy and quick.
The frequency of the messages received on the server can be set to a minimum of one message per minute to a maximum of one message per hour.
A threshold can be set to receive additional alert messages immediately when there is a quick temperature variation.
An optional feature can be turned on to monitor particularly critical intervals, for example between -5°C and +5°C. Under the circumstances, the sensor sends messages with greater frequency to give updates of the situation in almost real-time.
All the settings can be modified remotely via LoRaWAN.
