About the research

Objective

The objectives of this effort are to: 1) Develop location and density optimization models and solutions for all other members of AURORA that were not covered in our previous project; 2) Extend the methodology to account both spatial and temporal attributes of road weather and surface conditions; 3) Develop an empirical optimal density model and related guidelines based on results for all topographic-climate zones in central North America; 4) Evaluate the effects of spatial demarcation on RWIS planning, and examine the implications of RWIS deployment at different geographical/jurisdictional levels (e.g., leveraging the RWIS stations in neighbor states/provinces); and 5) Integrate the developed solutions into LORWIS (www.lorwis.com) – a prototype web-based RWIS location visualization platform for demonstrating the proposed models and the resulting solutions.
