Vaisala highlights road weather ITS technologies
Ben Brown of Vaisala shows off the weather related solutions
Vaisala is here at Intertraffic to highlight the latest in road weather ITS technologies. As the company points out, snow, ice, and flooding are all conditions that can drastically reduce any road network, no matter how sophisticated it is. Vaisala says that using its expertise in the industry, and listening to customers around the globe, the company has focused its weather related ITS solutions on products that provide the industry with the best low life cycle cost.
Featured here at Intertraffic is Vaisala’s Condition Patrol DSP310, the first-of-its-kind solution available to road weather maintenance professionals. It uses the most advanced technology to provide decision makers with a complete mobile weather solution to monitor their road network.
The system collects the data and displays it on a Smart phone on the dashboard of a vehicle and includes mobile measurements of a whole range of parameters. The data can also be brought back through the phone’s mobile network to be displayed in Vaisala’s road weather management software for viewing by others in the agency.
Also being featured on the stand is Vaisala’s RoadDSS Manager Decision Support Software, a road weather software system that provides the decision maker with a complete set of tools to make operational decisions. It is the most advanced product from the Vaisala RoadDSS Suite of road weather software, by integrating the road authority’s own operational guidelines and policies to provide treatment proposals, delivering a consistent guide for decision makers.
The system provides one location for the decision maker to access all relevant weather data, such as fixed road weather stations, mobile road weather data, vehicle traffic, satellite and radar information.
Vaisala will also be highlighting the role of its end-to-end road weather experts in providing complete solutions from design to service and maintenance.
