  • Safe Landings Whatever the Weather: Lufft Sensors on Airports

    Pilots, air traffic controllers and airport operators do their best to make air travel safer and more efficient. Sometimes, however, flight security depends on external factors we can hardly influence. This especially refers to risky weather conditions: Strong winds, icy cold or strong precipitation can have serious consequences. On average, 23% of all aircraft accidents and 68% of canceled ...

  • Case study - Weather stations for the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi

    For real-time meteorological data at the XXII Winter Olympic and XI Winter Paralympic Games in Sochi from February–March 2014, 29 specialized automatic meteorological stations (AMS) were installed in the areas close to the Olympic sport venues from 2010-2013.  This was in addition to the regular observation network that provided data for the weather now-casting system supplied and ...

  • Warehouse Optimization: Balancing Equipment Performance and Worker Safety Through Emissions Measurements and Air Quality Monitoring

    Successful warehouse functionality is dependent on both maximizing equipment performance and providing a safe and healthy environment for workers that encourages productivity. However, these two factors are often at odds with each other as warehouse equipment such as forklifts, burnishers and delivery trucks emit toxic gases that can have the potential to create poor indoor air quality which ...

  • Weather measurement during FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 / FIFA World Cup 2014 - Brazil - Case Study

    The compact weather station WS301-UMB is part of a mobile station for measurement and monitoring of climate measurements during the FIFA Confederations Cup 2013 and the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil. All soccer stadiums that took part on the FIFA Confederations Cup were already equipped with this stations. The weather stations measure temperature, rel. humidity, air pressure and global ...

  • Mexico - HydroMet Calibration Vehicle with WS501 weather station on board - IGS Hydro - Case Study

    The Office of Meteorology and Hydrology in Mexico equipped a vehicle with measurement technology for verification of their Hydro-Met stations. We are proud that they decided to choose our smart WS501 compact weather station (All-in-one) for measurement of the meteorlogical parameters. With the integration of the smart weather sensor WS501-UMB the calibration vehicle can provide accurate data ...

  • Real time odour monitoring: odour abatement monitoring using electronic noses.

    The equipment implemented to reduce odour emissions is designed with effectiveness in mind. However, some operating conditions may reduce that effectiveness without an industrial site being able to detect this quickly. Processes that most of the time have low odour emissions may become, under certain weather conditions, a major nuisance source. An electronic nose system can detect odour before ...

  • What is Long Term Noise Monitoring?

    It might sound simple, but long term noise monitoring can mean different things to different people. There is no standard definition for what long term noise monitoring is, but here is a summary that covers the basics. I first presented this presentation at the IOA Eastern Branch meeting and wanted to share my thoughts on what classes as long term noise monitoring. I’ll also discuss ...

  • Monitoring network for Scottish ports - Case Studies

    Historically, ferry masters operating off the west coast of Scotland would have to sail to a port and on arrival visually assess the weather and tide conditions before deciding whether safe berthing alongside the pier or quayside would be possible. This wastes time and fuel, and can causes immense frustration among passengers, who may see ferries come close to a port, but thereafter depart ...
