Connected cars for real time smart road maintenance and increased driving safety

Project description

Immediate alerts of hazardous road conditions

To keep traffic flowing and road users safe, it’s important to maintain roads. Weather conditions greatly affect road conditions. Snowy and icy roads, for instance, increase the risk of road accidents. Current methods for monitoring and forecasting road conditions cannot present real-time road surface data for an entire region. In this context, the EU-funded Klimator-RSI project proposes a new system that uses unique algorithms to interpret three key data sources to monitor and predict road surface conditions on an entire road network with a well-designed and clear user interface. The data can be processed and represented on a visual map of the whole road network and can also be sold to car manufacturers as a friction mapping service for drivers and autonomous vehicles.
