Mobile IceSight – Model 5435-00

The Mobile IceSight Pavement Surface Condition Sensor – Model 5435-00 is a remote mobile surface condition sensor that provides real-time surface condition and atmospheric information from a moving vehicle.


  • Real-Time surface conditions from moving vehicle
  • Includes surface temperature, air temperature and relative humidity
  • Simple integration with existing AVL systems
  • Data dash display from any Web browser
SKU: 5435-00 Categories: , ,


The Model 5435 Mobile IceSight provides real-time, location specific road weather data from a vehicle. The sensor’s standard, open-architecture data output includes surface condition, surface temperature, surface friction coefficient, air temperature and relative humidity. The mobile IceSight was developed for winter maintenance professionals who demand up to the second information about their roads and environment. The compact and rugged design can withstand the harsh environments of winter maintenance vehicles that make it ideal for fleet management.


  • Real-time surface and atmospheric data when and where you need it
  • Integrate into existing RWIS network to fill in gaps between fixed stations
  • Integrate into existing AVL and MDSS systems with the sensors open-architecture data output
  • Flexible mounting solutions with small form factor and 3 to 15 ft measurement range
  • Tool for vehicle fleet route optimization

5435 Mobile IceSight Vehicle dash displayThe sensor uses laser and infrared electro-optical technology to detect hazardous ice, snow and wet conditions with a surface grip value without embedding any sensors in the pavement. Surface states reported include dry, damp, wet, slush, snow and ice. Surface grip is reported as a friction coefficient on a scale of 0 (worst) to 1 (best) and in simple terms to the motorist as good, fair and poor. Road temperature is measured by an accurate non-contact infrared temperature sensor. Air temperature and relative humidity are measured separate from the main sensor housing to allow for accurate readings with quick response time to changing atmospheric conditions.

Integrated Wi-Fi, as a standard, is used to provide the user a web based data dash display compatible with any standard web browser on a computer or smart device. The dash display background colors change based on surface condition, giving the user instant feedback without needing to look directly at the display. In addition to the data display, a calibration applet is provided for sensor auto calibration and data logging from a Java enabled computer.
