Sensice ice detectors

Dr Ulf Elman, President

Sensice 2009


Sensice’s superior detectors

Smart new design gives better performance

More advantageous price/performance ratio

  • Significantly reduced maintenance cost

Sensice 2009


Traffic accidents in Sweden 1995-1999:

  • 37828 at snowy or icy road surface conditions, of these did

  • 15589 occur during black ice conditions, and in addition did

  • 572 accidents related to aquaplaning occur

General properties

Uses infrared spectroscopy

IR reception A

IR emission

IR reception B

Sensice 2009


General properties

  • Ice transparent to visible light

Principles of spectroscopy

  • Ice is reflective (metal like) in the MIR range

  • Ice is distinctly ”coloured” in the NIR range
