Compact Environmental Sensor

Our latest solution integrates our solar powered ‘Compact’ base with an ITS Environmental Sensor, offering clients the ability to monitor the external environment, producing a wide range of air pollution data that can be used to inform and direct on issues of air pollution safety.

Air Quality Monitoring

This solution is a low-cost system that offers the ability to build a high-density ambient air quality monitoring network that records data in real-time.

With low power demands, this unit can be powered by our ‘Compact’ solar powered base for air quality monitoring in applications where space is limited, including but not limited to:

  • Work places / work areas
  • Construction site safety
  • Events
  • Town centres / cities
  • Urban roads / Highways

These applications make this product a useful tool for a variety of industries, organisations and projects concerned with air quality, such as schools, Tier 1 construction contractors, local authorities and traffic management companies.

Perfect for temporary applications, this solution offers a very low cost alternative to static Air Quality monitoring stations and allows clients to cover more space, quickly and cost effectively.

This product’s bespoke hardware is manufactured in the UK and uses the latest generation of electrochemical sensor technology and LoRaWAN communication to collect and record real-time data onto its secure online dashboard.

Real Time Environmental Data

Data collected from this solution is displayed in real-time onto an online management dashboard. The status of each unit is displayed together with easy to read dials.
More detailed graphs allow clients to drill down and analyse the data on a minute by minute, day by day basis.

Fully customer-branded breakdown reports are also available from MVIS for our client’s convenience, making presenting and reporting on the data easier than ever.


Solar Powered Compact Base

When combined with our solar powered compact base, the applications of the ITS Environmental Sensor are greatly enhanced. Offering a small footprint, this unit can be deployed in many locations where competing solutions can’t be, enabling you to collect data where it may be dangerous or where there is limited space.

Being solar powered prevents the need for an external power source and offers extended run times in recommended conditions.

With hidden cabling, this unit is secured against vandalism or accidental damage and can be easily moved to the client’s requirements.

Success at Highways UK and Traffex Scotland 2019

November has brought a few busy weeks for MVIS, with not one, but two successive trade shows in as many weeks. The final industry trade shows of the year kicked off with Highways UK 2019 at the Birmingham NEC on the 6th – 7th November which was then followed by Traffex Scotland 2019 at the SECC in Glasgow on the 13th – 14th November, both keeping the MVIS team on their feet, ready and waiting to network with those interested in what we can offer.

Highways UK was very well attended, from exhibitors to visitors and all those in between, there was scarcely a moment that the MVIS stand was empty of attentive visitors. With many new and old faces in attendance, Highways UK provided an invaluable opportunity to raise the profile of the MVIS product range to a highly interested and concentrated audience. The other exhibitors all put on their finest display, with some very impressive and entertaining stands and exhibits on show to represent the very best of the industry.

The following week brought Traffex Scotland, offering its true value to us in the form of the amazing geographical networking opportunity. Since the opening of our new depot in the North East, Scotland is a location that MVIS can cater to easily, paving the way for a whole new route of conversation for us at this show.

The guest speakers in attendance were exceptional, bringing the very best of innovation in the industry from across the UK to this one location in a celebration of industry excellence, success and hard work. As with Highways, we saw many familiar faces along with new faces who were interested in seeing what the MVIS team and product range had to offer.

At both shows, our HD Compact VMS was one of the products that came out on top. With many visitors and exhibitors alike interested in this innovative and pioneering creation, we were delighted to be able to demonstrate its brilliance in such high profile and important environments.

Both events were a big success for us, bringing different strengths to the table that offered fantastic opportunities. For more information about future shows we will be attending, please contact, or for more information about our products, please contact
