Verification of System Health
- A compact, self-contained, solar-powered unit, Impact
Monitoring System (IMS) monitors the condition of EASI crash cushions.
Whenever a crash cushion is impacted, IMS immediately notifies the
central monitoring station, which then contacts appropriate personnel.
- IMS can be set up to provide periodic good health reports on crash cushions.
Reliable Data Transfer
- One or more sensors are attached to an IMS module which
poles these sensors continuously. When a sensor activates, an event
triggers. IMS sends notification to a central server, which then
dispatches a notice to the appropriate agency for further action.
- IMS uses Cellemetry® data service for a 2-way
communication platform. Cellemetry® uses the non-voice channel, which
cellular systems use for roaming, so it does not contend with voice
