Real-time Monitoring, Surveillance and Control of Road Networks under Adverse Weather Conditions
The COST Action TU0702 Final Seminar will be organized joint with and preceding the SIRWEC conference on 21-22 May 2012.
SIRWEC Conference participants have an excellent possibility to take part also to the COST Final Conference.
This final conference of the Action is intended to disseminate the overall scientific work of the Action and carried out during the last four years. The final outcomes and the results from the work of the Action will be presented in a series of technical presentations organized into different sessions based on the themes of the Action
The principal themes of the Action include:
Pavement Surface Conditions
Weather Modelling and Management
Traffic Management Strategies
All the technical presentations will be made by members of the Action and invited external experts.
Who should attend?
Researchers, practitioners and students from all fields of engineering and engineering systems, particularly traffic and road engineering and meteorologists those with expertise or interest in the field of weather and traffic.
Adverse weather conditions can have a significant impact on traffic operations and quality of traffic flow. The advanced technologies for collecting and archiving weather data can assist the development of intelligent weather-based traffic management strategies, monitoring and control systems. TU0702 project focus on the development of strategies and techniques aiming at improving the road traffic management and safety. The main goal is to mitigate the negative impacts of adverse weather conditions to traffic flows and to predict d the traffic flows under adverse weather conditions.
