METEOROLOGICAL MONITORING TO ANTICIPATE AND SECURE THE ROAD

The impact of meteorological conditions on the operation of infrastructure (roads, railways, energy transport, etc.), civil engineering structures and industrial production activities has an impact both in terms of exploitation and production. Integrating the impact of environmental phenomena into maintenance systems makes it possible to anticipate the consequences. However, the information coming from weather forecasts is not precise enough to measure the impact of variations in the singular “business processes”. Indeed, a precise knowledge of the impact of meteorological variations on your particular activity rests on the deployment of an adapted meteorological observation infrastructure requiring business knowledge, technical and technological skills.

 

Solution

The integration of meteorological data into decision support tools and control strategies is a key factor for civil engineering structures and infrastructure managers. It helps to clarify the analyzes and optimize your operations.

HIKOB SENTINEL solutions for monitoring the operating weather conditions of road, rail, energy transport and industrial production equipment infrastructures are designed for the rapid deployment and the simple integration of a continuous of meteorological data collection system, based on a multiplicity of points and a capitation perimeter easily expandable according to the objectives.

HIKOB SENTINEL solutions for monitoring the operating weather conditions of road, rail, energy transport and industrial production equipment infrastructures are designed for the rapid deployment and the simple integration of a continuous meteorological data collection system, based on a multiplicity of points and a captation perimeter easily expandable according to the objectives. We integrate sensors appropriate to your use case. They are designed to be energy independent, tailored to targeted measurements, and miniaturized for a minimum influence on your equipment or infrastructure.

The sensors and / or acquisition nodes are placed as close as possible to the measuring point. For increased fluidity and robustness, radio communications are carried out in the 2.4 GHz freeband according to the IEEE 802.15.4e standardized protocol, to the gateway which interfaces to an IP network.

Depending on the coverage, it is possible to extend the network by the addition of energy autonomous routers. Through the software and / or Cloud platform, you are able to store the different measures collected and view instantly the raw data and / or pre-processed data. Correlated between them, they give you a conclusive information in the decision-making process in your operations.

  • Sensors designed and / or adapted to the needs vs. constraints of use,
  • Embedded signal processing for maximum durability,
  • Acquisition and transmission of data continuously,
  • Extremely robust and multi-hop communication,
  • Standalone wireless routers for extended radio coverage,
  • Standardized and open interfaces for an easy integration (REST-XML programming interface, serial communication bus, dry contact outputs.
