UTK EcoSens GmbH

Climate measurements with trams

The measurement system developed by UTK EcoSens and Microtronics carries out climate measurements on moving means of transport without interfering with the electrical system. The data collected is used for the realisation of clean air plans.

Rolling measurement system on moving means of transport

The solution

In Jena, profile measurement runs are carried out with two trams and a bus. With technology from Microtronics, UTK EcoSens GmbH has developed a self-sufficient measuring system that does not interfere with the tram’s electrical system. The data collected in this way is used, among other things, for clean air plans based on EU directives and national laws.

For the realisation of this rolling measurement system for climate measurements and climate assessments, a myDatalogEASY V3, with two solar panels and meteorological sensors is installed on the roof of the tram or bus.

The recorded data is temporarily stored at the myDatalogEASY V3 and transmitted to the central web platform every two hours via 2G/3G. In addition to user data (temperature, humidity, GPS position), technical metadata (reception quality, battery voltage) are recorded. This ensures that the system is functioning properly.

All customers and means of transport are clearly displayed on the central web platform. In addition, detailed evaluations are available.

"With the help of Microtronics, we are now able to monitor all our stations at a glance."
