A WISA WAY TO DRIVE : INTELLIGENT SPEED ADAPTATION (ISA) CAN HAVE A POSITIVE ROLE IN AUTOMATICALLY IMPLEMENTING WEATHER WARNINGS, BELIEVE FINNISH TRAFFIC RESEARCHERS

This article discusses plans in Finland for testing the effectiveness of the weather-related use of intelligent speed adaptation (WISA). The test will involve vehicles that will use Global Positioning System (GPS) and digital mapping for vehicle location and speed limit information, and sensors to register driving speeds, steering movements and road surface friction. The vehicles will also have risk displays and haptic throttles to alert drivers to dangerous road conditions.
