RoadCloud has been awarded a one-year extension to its data supply contract with the Swedish Transport Administration (Trafikverket). Worth around SEK3.1 million, the extension was an option in the two-year contract signed by the parties in 2018.
RoadCloud has provided road surface friction data to Trafikverket in the Enköping, Gothenburg, Landvetter and Västerås areas, focusing particularly on highways. Trafikverket has used the data in a pilot project launched to improve the planning and execution of road maintenance efforts in Sweden. Its Swedish-language article on the topic can be found from comments.
Especially the Gothenburg area is attracting interest as an emerging vehicle data ecosystem.
The data is collected with a special friction measurement system developed by RoadCloud. Utilising optical sensors and data from the controlled area network (CAN) buses of vehicles, the system has been installed in buses, taxis, cargo transport vehicles and other commercial vehicles operating in the areas.
The entire fleet conducts friction measurements on approx. 75,000km of road surface a day. A demonstration of what kind of data the measurement system collects can be found from comments.
