Pavement icing is a significant safety hazard on many highways and bridges. Road crews apply salt and sand to improve traction but many accidents occur in spite of these actions. Road safety would be significantly improved by deploying wide-area icing sensors that could survey large roadway sections. These sensors could be linked to traffic monitoring centers which could then warn motorists of unsafe conditions as well as dispatch salt and sand trucks to alleviate the problem.

In addition, these sensors have a variety of other applications, such as monitoring aircraft runways and taxiways, and sidewalk icing conditions.
