Wx Road Insights

Data-as-a-Service and the new road to safety.

    DaaS has come to road maintenance

    Agencies often rely on general forecasts, sometimes with the addition of weather stations, to plan and react to winter events. Not everyone wants to (or can) manage a modern road network maintenance solution on their own.

    Vaisala Wx Road Insights is a Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) framework that provides accurate, reliable and consistent road weather data which can substantially change and improve your road maintenance practices.


    Provides safety-critical observations


    Wx Road Insights delivers highly accurate, local and real-time road surface conditions. Typical observation nodes include mobile surface condition, surface temperature, surface condition and grip.

    You can adjust or scale your Wx Road Insights deployment just like other Vaisala solutions, and have confidence knowing it will only improve as Vaisala continues to develop new enhancements.


    Saves time and costs

    Snowplow working

    For most organizations, progressing from a forecast or observation approach to an operational approach requires funding, technology and new practices — an expensive and time-consuming process.

    Wx Road Insights minimizes agencies’ infrastructure responsibilities while providing access to data that supports better decision-making. Because Vaisala maintains the equipment and communications, you can focus on what you do best: Keeping your road network safe and well-maintained.


    Responsive to modern needs
