Smart sensors for roads


To improve the accuracy of road data

About the Project

The city has launched a pilot to test smart sensors for roads (StreetSense). The small devices embed themselves in the road surface, reading and transmitting real-time information not only about the number of cars on the road, but also whether the road surface is dry, wet, hot, frozen, or gravelly. In addition, the devices provide their own energy, so their implementation is economical.


State: Optimizing the cost of maintaining road quality
People: Better quality roads, more accurate information about congestion and road conditions
