Wind early alarm system for terrestrial transport handling evaluation of risks

Objectif

Over the years the effects of high winds on road and rail vehicles have become of increasing concern to transportation system operators. Cars, high-sided lorries and trains can be at risk of a wind-induced accident on exposed sites such as embankments or long span bridges. The objective of the proposed Craft "WEATHER" is to develop an innovative wind alarm system for terrestrial transportation, which will enable risk evaluation. The WEATHER system will predict both the wind and the risk for a road transportation vehicle, taking into account the real ground configuration.

The aim of the project is to improve the safety of ground vehicles, specifically rail and road vehicles when exposed to strong high winds: WEATHER expected innovative achievements are the following: - To elaborate spatial-time wind models (including prediction models) in compliance with the needs of wind alarm systems (Workpackage 1).
