Patent Pending Optics
Our Mini RWIS is a non-invasive road temperature sensor that measures air temperature, humidity, and dew point. Each unit is equipped with an integrated RPU to allow operation at nearly any location with either direct or battery power, offering maximum flexibility. Our data is communicated through cellular, Radio, Sigfox, Bluetooth, and Wifi with brand new LTE Cat M1 and NB IOT networks offering multi-carrier worldwide coverage. Our units utilize industrial sim cards with a 400x longer lifespan than normal sim cards and will operate in temperatures as low as -40°C. Our patent-pending optics have allowed FCS to eliminate all moving parts and extend the range of measurement to 100ft.
Why partner with FCS?
Increase safety of city roads
Increase awareness and access to real- time winter road and weather conditions
Prioritize key routes
Save Money. By knowing your real-time road conditions you'll know when and where (or where not) to use salt and other deicing materials.
Mitigate environmental decay. Once salt is introduced to an environment, there are no natural ways to remove that salt causing an imbalance to all surrounding ecosystems.
Improve operational efficiency. Monitor road conditions remotely and only mobilize your staff when needed.
“The real benefit comes in the safety. And making sure we’ve got safe roads for people because we’re preventing accidents and hopefully saving lives in the process."

HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: CITYWIDE SENSOR NETWORK
Easily install our smart-sensors near schools, hospitals, key routes, and intersections with either a direct or battery powered unit for maximum insights on your road conditions. Need help? Our services include hardware installation, software, annual maintenance, tech support and more!
STEP 2: SENSOR ANALYTICS
Our sensors convey real time data such as surface temperature, air temperature, humidity, and dew point with access to historical data, daily summaries, alerts, and map views for all sensor locations.
With the insights gained from the data collected by our sensors, cities will be able to prioritize plow routes for optimal safety. By leveraging this data cities will be able to load and use the correct amount of salt needed per road creating savings on maintenance, labor, and deicing materials.
SAFER ROADS AND OPERATIONAL EFFICIENCY
STEP 4: DATA DRIVEN DEICING
Obtain actionable insights for Risk, Facility and Street Managers to prevent accidents, and reduce risk by creating safer roadways, walkways and parking lots. These insights also aid in preventing long term infrastructure corrosion and damage saving you even more in the long run.
Our Mini RWIS + C is a one-of-a-kind solution that comes equipped with its own integrated camera to capture images that can be used to easily confirm road conditions across any community.
Each sensor sends an image from its location alongside the regular data package to provide maximum insight as to what your road conditions are.
