1 Sensice ice detectors Dr Ulf Elman, President Sensice 2009

2 Sensice’s superior detectors More advantageous price/performance ratio Sensice 2009 Significantly reduced maintenance cost Smart new design gives better performance

3 Traffic accidents in Sweden : Sensice at snowy or icy road surface conditions, of these did occur during black ice conditions, and in addition did 572 accidents related to aquaplaning occur

4 General properties Uses infrared spectroscopy Sensice 2009 IR emissionIR reception BIR reception A

5 General properties Principles of spectroscopy Sensice 2009 Ice transparent to visible light Ice is reflective (metal like) in the MIR range Ice is distinctly ”coloured” in the NIR range

6 Applications Use with RWS Sensice 2009

7 Applications Icing alert at building entrances Sensice 2009

8 Applications Ice detection at airports Sensice 2009

9 Applications Ice sheet or icicle buildup at sensitive spots Sensice 2009

10 General properties Large thickness interval due to two wavelength detection Sensice mm – 3 cm

11 General properties Differentiates between six states: Sensice Wet 1. Dry 3. Clear ice 4. Snow 5. Sleet 6. Wet clear ice
