This project explores the design of a device capable of accurately measuring snowfall height and relaying that information wirelessly to a central location in order to map a given area with real-time data. The project focused on creating a product that is inexpensive, self-sustaining, capable of being spread anywhere necessary and working autonomously. Current methods of measuring snowfall are ineffective, archaic and require personnel to gather that information visually. The device in mind would improve the efficiency of plow deployment and usage during snowstorms, hence decreasing the high cost of plowing budgets when used in a city-wide approach.
