Fokus på halka: fokusgruppsresultat om attityder kring framtida halkinformationssystem
2008 (Swedish)Report (Other academic)
SRIS (Slippery Road Information System) is a Swedish project that will be accomplished during 2006-2008. The project aims to develop a system to evaluate winter road conditions in real-time. Information about the road condition is received both from the road weather information stations that are located along the roads and from ordinary vehicles running on the roads. The road friction is estimated from the vehicle's existing sensors and the information is sent to a central unit that merges all information and calculates a low friction index, which is presented on a web page. Further development of the system could make it possible to send information about low friction to drivers, when they are driving. Information about slipperiness could potentially also be useful for the winter maintenance workforce. In order to investigate professional drivers' and winter maintenance workers' attitudes towards slippery road information systems, two focus groups were conducted. Five winter maintenance workers participated in the first focus group, while the second group consisted of eight professional drivers of heavy vehicles.
