Sweden-based ASFT is the world’s leading developer and manufacturer of continuous friction measuring equipment (CFME), and is also a provider of cutting-edge ITS and road and runway weather information systems (RWISs).

ASFT develops and provides IT systems for surveying surface and weather conditions. Products include computerised technology for monitoring factors such as friction, freezing points, early ice warning-systems, precipitation, ground frost, ice deposit growth and camera-surveillance systems.

The technology is purpose built for stationary or mobile use; fixed information-systems provide continuous sampling of values and monitoring of changes over time. Whereas the vehicle-mounted sensors provide a mobile information centre, enabling complete coverage of an entire infrastructure to sense factors such as friction, pavement temperature, surface condition and surface-freezing point.
