has launched a route optimisation service that it claims reduces the time involved to create treatment routes based on weather hazards, network priorities and available resources.
The Vaisala Route Manager allows details of the road network and available resources such as depot locations and vehicle capacity to be imported to produce optimised routes with instructions which can upload to vehicles, the company adds.
According to Vaisala, the solution allows planners to create unlimited sets of routes based on different amounts of required treatment material with different routes and actions to effectively address any weather situation.
Route Manager also allows users to assign ranking and priority values to different parts of the road network and add new roads or account for details like parked cars, construction projects or low overpasses.
