A useful demonstrator: Snow Depth Monitoring System

The first demonstrator developed by Fagskolen i Viken is built in such a way that it utilizes a full IoT architecture enabling students to develop their skills and competencies. It targets 2nd year’s students at EQF level 4 and 5.

The snow depth demonstrator is developed to measure current snow depth on cabin roofs by a laser distance sensor. The responsible owner of the cabin is notified by an app for smartphone.

This is a very common issue in Norway where many people own a cabin in the woods and need to supervise snow load in winter to avoid crashing it.
