Podcast: RWIS Lite – Increasing Safety with Streamlined Road Weather Information Systems

Keeping roads and highways safe is critically important. 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. Wherever that is not feasible, be it due to local characteristics or tight budgets, mobile sensing, and streamlined 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.
