Road friction monitoring objectives

In our quest for road safety, we prioritize understanding the coefficient of friction. Using our advanced Friction Meter on both dry and wet roads, we measure the resistance of surfaces to ensure optimal tire-road friction. Our program focuses on real-time data, especially with changing pavement temperatures, to assess the friction between tires and roads accurately. This helps in the timely estimation of vehicle states amidst varying environmental conditions.

Unlocking superior safety with road friction monitoring

Hydroplaning & its impact on road friction assessment

Accurate friction assessments are crucial to preempt hydroplaning incidents. Wet friction, a significant factor on icy roads, can adversely influence vehicle speed, stability, and overall road safety. Factors like pavement and ambient temperature variations directly affect the coefficient of friction on road surfaces, underscoring the indispensability of continuous pavement friction measurement.
