South Bend Start-up Looks to Improve Winter Road Treatment
Updated: Aug 8, 2021
SOUTH BEND — At the corner of Eddy and Cedar streets, during a lull in the dismal weather last week, 23-year-old Bradley Tener pointed up at a small white contraption strapped to the overhanging traffic signal pole.
“That’s our newest model,” Tener said, explaining the capabilities of the infrared camera that can measure road temperature, air temperature, dew point and humidity.
Originally from the Lake Tahoe area at the northern California- Nevada border, where snow is often measured in feet rather than inches, Tener knows severe winter weather well.
