MetSalt is a new and unique road sensor for precise road surface temperature measurement and accurate freezing point detection.
The sensor is built into a roadway, which continuously measures the road temperature. Its precise freezing point detection is possible thanks to the method of active cooling and reheating of the road surface.
Its smart design allows surface temperature to be measured directly on its surface, and it is also equipped with an external probe, which can measure according to the method of installation the surface temperature around the sensor or temperature in road depth.
This measurement procedure is independent of the type of chemical spreading material used by road maintenance.
Precise information on the freezing point is indispensable for the winter maintenance dispatchers. Thanks to this information, they can reliably evaluate whether the maintenance has been sufficient enough or needs further spreading.
MetSalt combined with 2DRoad, provides an unmatched and comprehensive overview of the road surface.

In total, 60 innovative products were registered in the competition. Our company has been rewarded the award for the second time since the Intertraffic fair. Two years ago, we won a prize in the Smart Mobility category with the smart city Invipo product, which also became the overall winner.
"It is a huge success for us, all the more so that the new product is just coming to market. We are the first company in the history of the fair to win the award twice, "said Tomáš Juřík, director of CROSS Zlín.
This installation is additionally supplemented by the Invipo platform, which allows monitoring of more systems in one place, connects them and gathers data about offences and other information. Based on this, the Invipo platform is able to start the smart screenplays. For example, police could insert the registration mark of stolen vehicles and the system will send them notification once its passage is recognized.
CROSS and Incinity companies were represented by Mr. Lukáš Duffek who presented this extensive ITS project in front of the jury and an international audience.
We are very pleased that the Smart City field has an increasing number of supporters and that with the use our systems and technologies we are able to help not only town halls and service organizations to manage the processes in the city, but especially the citizens and visitors to feel safe in their city and to be well informed about day-to-day affairs.
Wireless sensor Sensit from the Nedap company allows to detect free parking spaces and to send the information about parking spaces occupation to the Invipo server. The system then allows to monitor the total time of parking and overtime parking, it helps to navigate into free parking spaces and also to prepare overviews and statistics about parking zones usage.
„These days we are finishing a very extensive project with Nedap and we believe that the joint realisation in Izmir will start our long-term cooperation on next commissions not only in Europe,“ said the Executive director and co-owner of CROSS company Mr Thomas Juřík. According to Juřík, the company is also creating a mobile application for drivers that will give them updates about free parking space.
The Dutch company Nedap established 1929 is a multinational technological leader with a diverse portfolio, from development to delivery of complex solutions. The company operates in areas of traffic counting, intelligent parking systems, security, health care, retail, and plenty of other fields. More about Nedap here.
"Our Invipo won from more than ninety nominees, which we consider a great success. It also suggests that the product is among the top software solutions that fully respects and supports the concept of Smart City, allowing to not only fulfill the vision of smart mobility, but the smart city as a whole," said Ing. Tomas Jurik, director of the company.
Invipo impressed the jury because it turns the concept of Smart City into reality by integrating a variety of data, including the intensity of traffic, parking options, arrival times, weather or even closures into one user-friendly web platform. InVipo is able to collect data, for example from management systems of intersections, public transport, parking areas, CCTV systems, monitoring systems of traffic intensity, and also from city services and other urban information systems. The output results in overviews, statistics and reports on traffic conditions, it can be used as a tool for influencing and directing traffic, and it can also be used as internet and mobile applications for drivers and the general public. In the same way Invipo can offer insights and information from other areas of city life, such as culture and sports.
