Mobile Road Weather Condition Monitoring

Summary: Mobile road weather monitoring involves the integration of environmental sensors with vehicle systems.

Introduction

In combination with global positioning system (GPS) technologies, truck-mounted sensor systems can be utilized to sense pavement conditions (e.g., temperature, friction) and atmospheric conditions (e.g., air temperature). Transportation agencies in Iowa, Michigan and Minnesota have partnered to deploy and evaluate advanced maintenance vehicles equipped with mobile sensors.

Main Entry

Mobile salinity sensors measure the salt residual concentration of defreezing solution and road surface temperature. This information can then be used to recalculate, either manually or automatically, a more suitable salt residual concentration for defreezing. Such salinity sensor systems optimize the efficient use of the defreezing solution and aid in the prevention of salt pollution.
