Real-time reaction, autonomous and energy-efficient snowmelt technology for lightly and heavily trafficked pavement surfaces.

Project description

Heating ribbons help melt snow on road

Fog. Ice cover. Pavement frost. Swirling snow. These are just some of the winter conditions that cause traffic delays and accidents. Current solutions range from clearing snow and salting pavements, but these measures have low response times and damage traffic surfaces, cause vehicle corrosion and are also bad for the environment. The EU-funded Snowless project proposes a snow melting solution. It is using amorphous alloy heating ribbons that are embedded in pavements and a completely automatic control unit with real-time dynamic response. Segmented heating zones ensure real-time response (15 minutes from automatic snow/ice detection), low annual operational costs and almost no maintenance. The Snowless solution is also eco-friendly, prevents asphalt cracking, reduces the temperature amplitude and promotes self-healing in the asphalt.
