Intelligent traffic systems
Improving traffic fluency and road safety using new innovative techniques are the key elements of intelligent traffic systems. The Finnish Meteorological Institute is a partner in the international WiSafeCar project, which develops a platform for data transfer between cars and infrastructure.
The output data delivered in the system will include road weather and emergency information. Intelligent traffic systems includes also route planning system and expected road weather along the route. Data are transferred wirelessly between cars or cars and infrastructure (e.g. traffic management centres), enabling the most urgent data to be delivered to the drivers in real-time.
