Abstract

More frequent extreme weather conditions will lead to a greater demand for road weather services for more efficient winter maintenance operations and the reduction of weather-related accidents. In the European Union, extreme weather conditions were estimated to result in costs of approximately 15 billion every year. Finland has had to adapt to changing weather conditions in managing its transport system, and this has led to the accumulation of winter-related expertise both in technology and best practices that could be translated into better and more products and services. In Finland, this could mean annual benefits of up to 30 million. Enablers for these new services could be different types of mobile measurements and the availability of open weather-related data. Urban environments, on the other hand, provide unique challenges for acquiring and utilising road weather information.
