The road ahead: Driving improvement in winter maintenance

Aviation and Road Solutions

When it’s your job to keep the road safe, you need more than a weather forecast: You need to identify the optimum treatment action to minimize weather impact. However, it can take years of experience to interpret a forecast, combine it with road sensor data, and act at the right time.

Join us for this interactive webinar where we’ll talk about:
•    The latest winter maintenance trends
•    How actionable weather information drives improvement in winter maintenance
•    The science behind forecasting and how Vaisala uses forecasts and high-quality sensor data to help you focus on keeping your roads safe
