About the research

The highway concept vehicle is a mobile laboratory that seeks to examine and test newly emerging technologies that have potential for improving the level of service during the winter. The objective of Phase IV included improving the level of service at the least cost to taxpayers and reducing the impact on the environment. This was accomplished by using data and information regarding actual road conditions to facilitate and adjust snow and ice control activities.
