Road Health collects road information, combining road friction, roughness, potholes and road bumps in real-time to create a detailed view of road surface conditions across towns and cities. Preserving and maintaining community transportation infrastructure is a necessary and expensive endeavor. With the insights from Road Health, transportation departments can analyze the conditions of vehicles, causes of maintenance needs, and reasons for structural deterioration on roads to get a clear view of what has happened before and now, ultimately improving road safety and decreasing maintenance and asset management costs.
Winter Road Insights enables governments to effectively treat road networks and make life-saving decisions during the winter. By monitoring the performance of the road networks during potentially dangerous weather conditions, Winter Road Insights compiles road temperature data, slippery alerts to better inform salting, road closures and snow removal plans. This cost-effective solution provides winter road network status updates and the ability to understand the effectiveness of road treatments, saving vital resources when needed the most. With Winter Road Insights, commuters can travel safely by understanding which roads are affected by weather and can guarantee better incident response times.
“With the joint efforts of our companies, we will provide information to improve road safety across the US and in Europe,” said Lisa Åbom, CEO of NIRA Dynamics. “Connected car data makes it possible to improve safety by optimizing road maintenance and providing visibility of what is happening on our roads throughout the year.”
