Adverse weather causes countless traffic fatalities as well as innumerable hours lost to traffic congestion. Delays caused by snow, rain, ice, wind, and fog cost time and money to commuters, businesses, and delivery systems. The Pikalert® MAW provides hyper-local, near real-time road weather information for the traveling public. Incorporating Connected-Vehicle data, the tool provides current information on visibility, road condition, and road precipitation. Using the MAW, drivers will be able to schedule and plan routes in advance. While on the road, a mobile application keeps drivers abreast of changing road weather conditions.
