-1,8°C

Is it necessary to perform any maintenance activity???

+10°C


The problem

The problem

  • A lot of data is measured

    • 700 stations

    • several sensors

    • quality

    • representativity

  • Interpretation requires good knowledge and integration with other sources

MDSS – maintenance decision support system

  • Information not data

  • -For road stretches

  • About road conditions

  • Overview or detail

  • Interpreted


Mdss summary

MDSS-summary

Integrate information from different scales and sources

in order to give information about the prevaling conditions

and a forecast for the next hours
