Digitization benefits the industry. Now, lower costs and reduced environmental impact are announced when Svevia develops its digital solution to change the conditions for road maintenance. Information about temperature, weather conditions and road conditions, handles and answers to questions such as; when, how and where will the roads become icy, and each situation can thus be managed in a tailor-made manner.
– Increased availability of data from road sensors, connected vehicles and machinery creates the conditions for high quality roadmap forecasts and optimization of efforts, which can significantly streamline the road maintenance of the future. At the same time, the harmful environmental impact reduces through reduced transport and reduced salt usage” says Andreas Bäckström, project manager at Svevia.
Svevia is looking forward to the dynamic optimization and believes that the costs of road maintenance can be cut down with millions of Swedish crowns each year. Reduced environmental impact and higher road safety are further benefits Svevia sees with the project.
