Manage Your Critical Road Weather Conditions Always and Everywhere

Keeping roads and highways safe is a highly responsible task. In addition to autumn’s and winter’s perils, the increase of weather fluctuations and extreme weather events throughout the year pose further challenges to road decision-makers. To guarantee safe traffic, accurate road weather information is more important than ever.
Ideally, a dense network of Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) combined with mobile sensing enables you to monitor road weather conditions at the right spots and in real-time.

On this page, we gather well-grounded insights, relevant articles, and interesting conversations with RWIS experts. Whether you are new to the industry or an experienced road weather specialist – this Microlibrary surely holds valuable content for you.

Our customers from highway agencies and local authorities all over the world have experienced the safety and efficiency improvements that are achieved thanks to our systems. They confirm, that through our sensors they were able to:

  • Improve the predictability & reduce accidents due to icy, foggy, or wet conditions
  • Ensure operational efficiency
  • Give evidence in the case of an accident due to critical weather conditions
