What is Intelligent Road?

Intelligent Road is a project aiming at increasing safety of the arctic roads in Northern Scandinavia. By using the innovative technology of the northern businesses, it creates a system that can provide road-users with short-term road weather information data. The testing and system implementation is carried out by combining the exclusive arctic know-how and testing facilities of the project partners In Finland and Sweden.

This project is partly financed from the European Union’s Regional Development Funds for interregional cooperation (Interreg IV A North programme)

PUBLIC WEB APPLICATION For the last winter period of the project we have made a combined view on various data available. You can access the map from this link: http://data.intelligentroad.eu/vis/map/hour/ Upcoming features are for example more detailed friction information, road temperature and water layer thickness. Also the data visualization will be further optimized. Feel free […]

ADVANCED DATA VISUALISATION The Intelligent Road system is a demonstration platform for road-weather and road condition monitoring technology. In the demo phase, the data will be visualized through a web application. Currently the system is gathering data from in-vehicle installed measurement systems, road-weather stations and from road weather forecasts that are updated every 15 minutes. […]

WEB APPLICATIONS USED IN VISUALISING THE ROAD-WEATHER DATA The data collected in Luleå during the winter season 2012/2013 has been analyzed and the result is an improved friction estimation using the RoadEye sensor. The friction is divided into five different friction intervals (0-0.2, 0.2-0.4, 0.4-0.6, 0.6-0.8 and 0.8-1 µ) where friction below 0.4 µ means […]

Test measurements of in-vehicle optical sensors
April 25, 2014

On the 24th of April test measurements of optical sensors used in Intelligent Road project were accomplished in Luleå, Sweden. Tests were carried out by using Volvo XC90 test vehicle to which all optical sensors are mounted simultaneously and by doing several test drives with the vehicle in the surroundings of Luleå. There are two […]
