visIvis - Vision-based Visibility Measurement
visIvis is a software solution that defines the visibility of a location with the help of images from statically mounted digital cameras. The operator can use a wide range of already existing cameras - from webcams to professional industrial cameras. Software adjustment of the system to the camera is partially automated. Each captured image will be fully automatically analyzed and the prevailing visibility will be defined.
In order to guarantee safe air traffic, controllers have to rely on precise forecasts and measurements of the current weather situation. The decisions the controllers take do not only impact the security, but also influence the air traffic and its economic repercussions in case of delays.
2D Video Distrometer
The 2D video distrometer measures the outline, profile and fall speed of precipitation particles. From these measurements, the particle size distribution, rate of rainfall and the nature of the precipitation particles (raindrops, hail or snow) are determined.
Reliable models for the fine structure of precipitation are basic requirements for a wide range of applications in telecommunications, remote sensing and meteorology. The 2D video distrometer provides the necessary detailed information: with two high-speed cameras, precipitation particles are filmed from the front and the side and, thus, measured with a high degree of accuracy.
DIVMET determines alternative, meteorologically conflict-free flight routes based on the current geographic positioning and forecasts for adverse weather.
The occurrence of thunderstorms is still a special challenge in aviation. It leads to:
• danger situations for pilots and passengers
• increase of pilots stress
• delays in departure and arrival
• decrease of passengers comfort
• need of more aircraft fuel
