Road infrastructure across the globe is under intense pressure from vehicle volume, traffic congestion and extreme weather. To achieve more effective road investment and maintenance, HERE Technologies offers Road Roughness: a product that makes monitoring changing road conditions effortless, more successful and more affordable. It does it by providing transportation agencies with detailed information on their road network quality.
Road Roughness classifies road networks into Good, Fair and Poor segments. The geographical road roughness measure of each segment has an International Roughness Index (IRI). Each reading is timestamped and includes the direction of travel to accommodate bi-directional roads. In addition, HERE Technologies provides further context to the detected rough area, by locating and identifying incidents such as bumps or dips. Road Roughness gives transportation agencies a powerful new analytics tool to ensure proper safety and efficiency across their network.
