Road Condition Data

Taking multiple factors and elements into account.

Forecast length up to 72 hours
Road condition forecast for any road network
Segment lengths vary from 500m down to 5m
_ 03.2

Examples of Inputs & Outputs

Road weather information stations

Surface temperature, Air temperature, Humidity, Dew Point, Precipitation and much more.

Weather Forecast

Weather forecast from any provider.


Geosegmentation is a GIS description of road segments and road weather stations. It encompasses local climatological factors that affect road temperature for all segments and all stations

Vehicle Data

We are the only company who can combine live friction data and traditional road weather data to bring better information our clients and customers.

Road Treatment Actions

Action data is an important component for the forecasts in the system to be relevant.



We give you reliable information about the road weather, now and 72 hours ahead. We can tailor the solution to fit your needs, let us know what you are in need of and we will make sure to create the best possible solution to your problems.

  • Road Condition: dry, moist, wet, light snow, snow, drifting snow, sleet, frost, heavy frost, ice, freezing rain.
  • Surface temperature
  • Dew point
  • Residual salt
  • Friction (modelled and measured)
  • Laser data
  • Recommended maintenance action
  • Hazardous warnings
  • Alerts
  • and much more.

Note that these are only examples of data input and output.
