Helsinki, Finland — Vaisala will be demonstrating its roads industry leadership and the functionality of new mobile sensor technology to its customers in Europe with a unique mobile road weather tour over the winter period of 2012-13.
Starting from Vienna, Austria, the tour will take vehicles equipped with the new and revolutionary Vaisala Condition Patrol DSP310 road surface monitoring technology through 15 European countries that are especially prone to snow and ice.
Tracks Across Europe
The tour will end at Vaisala’s head office in Helsinki, Finland in March 2013. Named Tracks Across Europe, the tour is a sequel to the extremely successful Vaisala Across America tour which took place last winter.
“We are truly excited to offer our road customers the opportunity to experience our mobile data collection system in a unique and hands-on way,” says Antero Jarvinen, Director of Vaisala’s Roads and Rail Market Segment.
Vaisala is the leader in providing cutting edge technology for those concerned about the impacts of weather on their road network. The Vaisala Condition Patrol DSP310 is a first-of-its-kind product as it features the first mobile road weather sensing equipment to measure pavement temperature, air temperature, atmospheric moisture, road state, thickness of water or ice, and surface friction.
A perfect complement to fixed road weather stations, the Condition Patrol provides those in charge of road maintenance information to make better decisions, reduce costs, protect the environment, and reduce the likelihood of traffic crashes.
The mobility of the system allows maintenance crews to gather road weather data along their entire road network or highways in real time, which has never before been possible.
Obtaining data from the Vaisala Condition Patrol DSP310 is easy and flexible as it can be viewed by the driver, stored in the vehicle, or transmitted for viewing over the internet.
