Canada's swathes of ice are set to become safer thanks to a new form of SmartICE technology. Using a mix of sensors and Inuit observation methods, developers access data to gauge the density and strength and durability of the ice.

SmartICE, which is available as an app, can help ensure the transport of vital basic goods to remote places.
