Keeping roads and highways safe is a highly responsible task. In addition to autumn’s and winter’s perils, the increase of weather fluctuations and extreme weather events throughout the year pose further challenges to road decision-makers.
Ideally, a dense network of road weather monitoring stations reliably provides accurate, hyper-local data from the road. Wherever that is not feasible, be it due to local characteristics or tight budgets, mobile sensing, and slim Road Weather Information Systems (RWIS) based on proven, versatile instrumentation by Lufft can fill the gaps and ensure availability of essential weather and road surface information.
