Automation, digitalization, and innovative energy sources will change traffic and the modes of transportation. Autonomous vehicles require ever more accurate environmental observations. Observations and analyses on the environment and road state enhance the safety and efficiency of traffic in different conditions. At the same time, the environmental impacts of fossil fuels have increased the need to find alternatives.
Vaisala provides solutions that combine measurement technologies, computer vision, weather forecasts, and open data, thus delivering relevant information to the operators and users of road infrastructure. Based on that data, they can make suitable decisions and ensure the safety and efficiency of road, rail, sea, and air transport. Furthermore, Vaisala provides cars’ navigational systems with weather data that will be essential also for autonomous vehicles and drones in the future.
In addition, Vaisala’s solutions enable the use of high-quality fuel cells, lithium batteries, and biogas as the energy source of vehicles.
