    Abstract

    This study presents the in-vehicle road friction estimation module to provide information for the vehicle driver to adapt his/her driving style. Main aim is to enable support for saving fuel, minimising ecological impact and improving traffic safety. The module bases on the IcOR camera system developed by VTT which has been combined with the inertia data which measures accelerations/decelerations of the vehicle. Moreover, GPS receiver has been implemented to provide geographical position of the vehicle which is important for the infrastructure side cooperative traffic services. The test results indicate clear correlation with the lateral accelerations and IcOR road weather measures. The most important outcome is the chance to reduce number of false alarms since the acceleration based measurement is not sensitive for driving environment changes in outdoor as the IcOR camera system. Morover, the benefit of the acceleration data is possibility to maintain IcOR system detection reliability in level of 70 % when driving dark environment like tunnels or night time
