At this year's trade fair Intertraffic Amsterdam 2014, the German measurement and control technology company Lufft will present its latest device development. With the mobile road weather information sensor MARWIS presents the long-established company an absolute world premiere. On the specially made microsite a counter timer counts the days until the demonstration of the mobile non-contact sensor.

From the 25th to 28th March 2014 visitors of the Intertraffic Amsterdam can take a first impression of MARWIS on the Lufft booth 11.532. When mounted on any vehicle, the sensor for mobile road weather information collects weather data such as the road surface temperature, dew point, water film height, the road conditions (humidity, snow, ice and frost) and grip (friction) and as well as other environmental data. The measured data can be sent via Bluetooth, for example on an iPad or iPhone directly to the vehicle. All metrics are evaluated from the mobile device or tablet in real time and delivered via cloud data to the visualization software SmartView by Lufft. While driving, MARWIS measures meteorological data and road condition information 100 times per second. At a driving speed of 80 kilometres per hour, the mobile sensor records the desired data every 20 centimetres. The condition of the road surface does not matter in the measurement. Whether freezing ice, snow or rain: MARWIS distinguished reliably and accurately to the desired data.

At the exhibition for infrastructure, traffic management, safety and parking Lufft will present its latest development MARWIS to the public for the first time. Customers and interested parties can locally visualize on ​​the mobile road weather information sensor. Lufft's expert team will be at Intertraffic Amsterdam to demonstrate the new product and will be available for questions.

From the 25th to 28th March 2014 the 26,000 trade visitors can expect more than 800 exhibitors in the field of ​​transport infrastructure, traffic management, road safety and parking management.
