METOS STATIONS APPLICATIONS – USE CASES

CITY CLIMATE

CITY CLIMATE

Pessl Instruments is providing hardware for meteoblue’s city climate project. The system enables cities to develop an affordable infrastructure to precisely measure, forecast, and model their city climate within less than a year. This creates a reliable information basis for the city planners, decision makers, and the citizens.

    FLOOD WARNING

    FLOOD WARNING

    When river level rises to a pre-set threshold, iMETOS stations send SMS warnings to the user. Thanks to the long battery life and reliable communication in extreme weather conditions, prevention, mitigation and flooding control are in your hands.

      STADIUMS

      STADIUMS

      The most modern stadium in Latin America, which has received more than 4 million fans since it’s opening, is now even more efficient than before. METOS Brasil, a subsidiary of Pessl Instruments, recently installed a weather station to monitor climate in Allianz Parque arena with absolute precision.

        OTHER APPLICATIONS

        GOLF COURSES IRRIGATION

        GOLF COURSES IRRIGATION

        The lack of good golf course irrigation can easily affect the quality of play, therefore, weather stations present an important aspect of the maintenance process on golf courses. With soil moisture levels and localised weather forecast, you can avoid over and under irrigation and resource losses. Well-planned irrigation management reduces maintenance costs, increases efficiency, and makes the irrigation more sustainable.

          PARKS IRRIGATION

          PARKS IRRIGATION

          With the fast expansion of urban areas, parks represent an important part of the city. They are both gathering points and relaxation areas and can help improve the air quality of the city. One of the most important resources to maintain the park’s appearance is water. Smart irrigation solutions provide data to decide the exact amount of water that plants require, when they need it and where the water is required. Installing weather stations is a way to meet all the demands – from saving resources to helping decrease the impact of climate change.

            ROAD SAFETY

            ROAD SAFETY

            Up to 20% of all World’s road traffic accidents happen due to poor weather conditions. Heavy rains make the road surface slippery; mist, fog, too bright sunlight lower the road visibility. Snow, ice, and frost severely reduce the friction, which with fast-breaking causes the vehicle to skid. Strategically located METOS weather stations alongside the highways and other roads, and FieldClimate, software for weather analytics, provides detailed information about the weather, helps determine road conditions and warns drivers to adjust their driving to the conditions down the road.

              URBAN GARDENING

              URBAN GARDENING

              Growing vegetables and fruits in an urban environment is expanding. And as traditional gardening, urban one needs to meet plants’ demands as well. iMETOS stations can be applied for indoor and rooftop gardening. They help with fully automatic smart irrigation and fertigation management, can start intelligent misting when air is too dry, and with the help of high-resolution cameras supported with AI software alert you when the plant protection or weeding is needed.

                BUILDING SAFETY

                BUILDING SAFETY

                Real-time and localised weather data can also be used to ensure building safety – to offer cooling and ventilation control for example. Another important aspect to measure is snow depth on the flat rooftops of big facilities such as supermarkets. Data that Pessl Instruments Ultrasonic depth sensor gathers is analyzed in FieldClimate and with this information at hand, the building manager can act before the excess of snow becomes too heavy and fractures or damages the roof completely.
