MTWE is one of the most important meteorological trade fairs on a global level and a wonderful platform to present the latest development of the camera-based visibility measurement system visIvis ®. The system is now able to perform automated detection of snow cover from camera images in a 24/7 operation.
Our expert Jean-Philippe Andreu (JOANNEUM RESEARCH DIGITAL) presented the innovation to an interested audience of experts during his lecture Transfer Learning with Change Monitoring for Camera-Based Snow Detection at the scientific conference TECO-2022 - Technical Conference on Meteorological and Environmental Instruments and Methods of Observation, which accompanied the MTWE. Mr Andreu's presentation attracted a lot of attention and was also one of the reasons for the lively attendance at our stand. There was increased interest from the air traffic management sector, which is increasingly relying on remote tower solutions and digitalisation.
In addition to intensifying existing contacts with the DWD - German Weather Service, we were also able to arouse great interest among other key stakeholders such as MetOffice UK and MeteoFrance, as well as among stakeholders from overseas.
