Industrial IoT will play a big role in the field of road maintenance. WiRMa project is targeting at researching, developing and testing new solutions in the field of winter road maintenance in the North while focusing particularly on exploiting vehicle-based sensor data.


The project features a test platform for experimenting with different sensor systems. The sensor data is applied in alert management and maintenance planning as well as in improved road weather forecast models. The project features a visualisation system for testing the results with end-users. In addition, new hybrid sensing technique will be developed for improved detection of icing on roads.
