Vaisala road weather services provides precision forecasting and road condition insights for advanced driving technology.
Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Automated Driving (AD) technology, part of our Xweather family of subscription based products, requires reliable data about road and driving conditions in all types of weather. Vaisala road weather for ADAS and AD delivers highly accurate surface condition data to support safer advanced driving programs.
Near-future road weather forecasts from Vaisala’s road weather services and information about current driving conditions support route comparisons and optimal route planning. For example, our technology can help drivers choose the fastest route by avoiding congestion caused by incoming heavy rain, indicate preference for using highway autopilot, or even test skills in more challenging weather conditions.
Analysis include a comprehensive assessment of road surface states, including information about friction estimates and water and ice film thickness for highly accurate road weather condition reports.
Predictive and pre-emptive road weather services can eliminate the need for sudden breaking or other unexpected changes due to road conditions, ultimately increasing driver safety and enhancing passenger comfort.
Highly accurate and reliable data about constantly changing road conditions increases the availability of AD and ADAS functionality for the end user and plays an essential role in the further development and fine-tuning of assisted and automated driving systems for OEMs and technology suppliers.
