REVIEW OF THE INSTITUTIONAL ISSUES RELATING TO ROAD WEATHER INFORMATION SYSTEMS (RWIS)
The project, funded by the Aurora Program, aimed to identify and document institutional issues relating to the implementation and development of Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS). For the purposes of this study, RWIS can be briefly defined as a collection of technologies which are used to assist transportation agencies in determining road condition and weather events. These technologies include pavement sensing and precipitation monitoring systems, for example. RWIS also encompasses various levels of sophistication from the utilization of a particular RWIS technology to a statewide network of weather prediction and pavement temperature detection stations.
