Interactive Local Road Weather Services through VANET-capable Road Weather Station

he European Eureka/Celtic Plus project CoMoSeF (Co-operative Mobility Services of the Future) creates co-operative mobility solutions, devices & applications feasible for large scale deployment and supporting the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) Action Plan COM (2008) 886 and national ITS strategies. The project aims to create co-operative mobility solutions (including devices and applications), feasible for large scale deployment that support the objectives of the European Commission’s ITS Action Plan and national ITS strategies. In practice this means communication system between vehicles (V2V) and vehicles and infrastructure (V2I/I2V), employing interactive example services related to safety and weather information exchange. In this paper the authors present FMI (Finnish Meteorological Institute) approach to employ CoMoSef vehicular networking entity to provide route weather information for vehicles bypassing the combined Road Weather Station (RWS)/Road Side Unit (RSU). Route weather is a special type of weather service tailored for dedicated road stretches, based on a road weather model and data collected from local RWSs and from vehicles themselves.
