Abstract

A Road Weather Information System is comprised of four main components: 1) Road Microclimate Information - Thermal Mapping; 2) Pavement and Atmospheric sensors, weather radar; 3) Road Weather Forecasts - road and air temperature, wind velocity, and road ice prediction models; 4) Computer networking of all the above information. Research is currently being carried out to both compare and improve existing RWISs. Several international research programmes are under way such as COST-309, SHRP-H207 and DRIVE. This paper will look at initial results from the SHRP-H207 program and assess the performance and cost/benefit of RWISs installed in the UK. -from Author
