Classification of road conditions - to improve safety
2007 (English)In: Advanced microsystems for automotive applications 2007 / [ed] Jürgen Valldorf; Wolfgang Gessner, 2007, 47-59 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Measuring the road condition in front of a vehicle could prevent accidents and make technologies like electronic stability control (ESP) more efficient. By making three investigations of the classifications of the four road conditions dry asphalt, asphalt covered with water, ice and snow the possibility of a preview sensor is exploited. By measuring the reflectance from the different surfaces with a halogen light and an actual sensor (Road eye) in a laboratory surroundings the advantage and disadvantage are revealed. The sensor is also mounted in a Volvo truck for real-life condition measurements.
