Thanks to the Winter Service Management System, the operational planners of the Motorway and Road Maintenance in Bavaria are able to react much earlier to icy conditions. The system bundles a large number of permanently incoming data, analyzes it, compiles it into a complete picture, and predicts the formation of black ice, packed snow and slush in the next few hours.
Extreme weather conditions in the winter months in the German state of Bavaria represent a serious challenge to road maintenance services in the region. Maintaining the flow of traffic throughout the road network requires a Winter Maintenance Service Management System that operates efficiently and with foresight. One of its main tasks is to coordinate the 600 public and 700 private service vehicles deployed to keep traffic moving along Bavaria's 22,000 kilometers of roads. With the digital winter service system, it has been possible to create a solution based on a variety of data in conjunction with appropriate equipment, which, despite the complexity of the assignment, is not only easy to use, but gives precise assistance to winter road maintenance services.
Multiple layer types are combined on the map to enable a common operating picture and continuous prediction of dangerous road conditions.
