Best Practices for Road Weather Management Version 2.0
Multi-Functional Deployment of AHS Key Technology
This paper presents an overview of the state of development of key technologies for Advanced Cruise-Assist Highway System (AHS). Users services of AHS include support for road surface condition information. The functions required from road surface condition sensors are dry, wet, water film, new snow, packed snow, slush, packed snow ice sheet, and ice film. Laser radar sensors and millimeter wave radio meters are non-contact sensors able to detect road condition states.
