Lufft adds ambient weather parameters to Marwis
First publishedITS America
Leading measurement technology manufacturer Lufft is here at ITS America 2016 San Jose with some new developments as well as the company’s well-established weather sensors and a promise to provide visitors with handson experience of its systems.
A major highlight is the return of Marwis, Lufft’s mobile road weather information sensor which was first released in America at the ITSA World Congress in Detroit two years ago. There have been upgrades since then though: the new version being unveiled here is equipped with an additional probe to detect ambient weather parameters. It complements the measurement components of the first version which all have been directed to the road surface. Lufft has a working Marwis on site and will be available to take visitors on a drive to see the unit work in real time.
All visitors need do is stop by the company’s booth to set up a time to experience the system in the real world.
Aside from Marwis 2.0, Lufft will be displaying a new visibility sensor line, a major evolution from the VS20 which has been very successful over the past 10 years. The differences between the new and the old models are obvious: the latest VS20K has a new, elegant design; a special, spider defensive coat; a vibrating active spider defence module, as well as a sea water resistant housing.
