Wireless WxT



The Wireless WxT sensor is a permanent solution for collecting both traffic and weather data. The Wireless WxT sensor is a self-contained, in-pavement sensor that utilizes Vehicle Magnetic Imaging (VMI) technology to detect vehicle count, speed and classification. In addition, the WxT sensor measures pavement temperature and condition.

The Wireless WxT sensor reports wirelessly to a site controller alongside the roadway, or to a road weather station (RWIS). The sensor features an easily removable lid, which allows for quick extraction of sensor components during road maintenance or sensor maintenance.

The Wireless WxT provides accurate and essential data necessary for effective traffic analysis, control and management during adverse weather conditions such as fog, icy roads, high winds, or flooding. When used with QTT RWIS, the WxT sensor helps decision makers determine the effects of weather on traffic.
