    This paper presents two methods of detecting and providing slipperiness related road weather information in a co-operative manner. One method is based on image processing whereas the other uses information from the vehicle information system. With co-operative systems, drivers can be warned about slippery conditions. The motivation behind the need for slipperiness detection is looked at, and potential new applications and research areas are examined. Finally, some issues that need special attention related to slipperiness detection are presented.
