Remote Sensing of Road Surface Conditions and ITS Applications

There is a growing consensus internationally that ITS applications have a great potential to make winter operations more targeted and cost-effective and help to reduce the risk for accidents more in general. Real-time monitoring of the road state will be basic data both in a decision support system and in a warning system for the motorist especially in winter time. To monitor the prevailing driving conditions, remote sensing of road surface conditions is an interesting concept and throughout the last years there has come up some new products on the market. Even if there exists some documentation there is still a need for more testing and experience especially with mobile use of optic sensors under winter conditions and with an operational perspective. This is why it is taken an initiative in Norway to carry out a project on remote sensing of the road state by use of mobile units.
