Senet and Frost Control Systems Partner to Deliver LoRaWAN Weather Information

Software and services platform provider Senet, Inc., announced a partnership with Frost Control Systems, a U.S. based manufacturer and service provider of non-invasive, non-contact, Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS). This partnership allows Frost Control Systems to integrate Senet LoRaWAN network connectivity with their turnkey RWIS service. It provides data of atmospheric and surface temperature for winter road condition monitoring.
With more than 1.2 million winter weather-related vehicle crashes, over $3 billion spent on de-icing materials, and 48 billion pounds of salt spread on roadways each year in the U.S. alone, automating the collection of critical road weather data for real-time decision making can have an immediate and measurable impact on roadway safety, the cost of deploying municipal resources, and the environment.

Supporting LoRaWAN and partnering with Senet for network connectivity is a strategic commitment that provides public works departments with the opportunity to improve operations and save costs by modernizing their roadway monitoring and management systems,

said Brad Tener, CEO at Frost Control Systems.

Senet’s carrier-grade network service and software supports the mission critical nature of road weather information systems. It provides cities and counties with a reliable, long-term connectivity solution for other infrastructure modernization projects.

RWIS includes hardware, software, installation, maintenance, and network design. Carrier-grade LoRaWAN network services from Senet ensure broad coverage optimized for low-power, long-range environmental monitoring sensors. These sensors provide data on road temperature, air temperature, humidity and dew point to weather response applications. With timely, accurate, and actionable hyper-local information, public works professionals are able to improve roadway safety by ensuring proper treatment of high-risk areas. Even small municipal customers have reported cost savings of $10,000 to $15,000 per winter weather incident, realized through operational efficiencies, reduced material costs, and reduced overtime.

We are excited to be partnering with Frost Control Systems to help municipalities improve their operations and save costs using low-cost wireless sensors, advanced network technologies, and highly differentiated service delivery models,

said Bruce Chatterley, CEO at Senet.

The solution offered by Frost Control Systems is another proof point of how municipalities can better serve their citizens, address inefficiencies, and protect the environment with LoRaWAN enabled IoT solutions.
