Grip Sensor Technology and Salt Applications

Project #: 4W9662
Start Date: 03/01/2022
End Date: 08/31/2024

The goal of this project is to holistically examine grip, or friction, as a viable data source for informing winter maintenance operations and use the gathered information to develop a methodology to apply friction in an algorithm. This will inform a decision matrix tool that winter maintenance operators will use to determine appropriate winter maintenance activities and material application rates.

Benefits: Incorporating roadway friction into decision-making tools could help determine when and where winter maintenance activities need to take place. This will improve safety for all road users.
