Next ARTRAC meeting to be hosted by VTT in Espoo

In their next regular meeting, the members for the first time during the ARTRAC project will assemble in Finland at VTT's site in ESPOO on 19 and 20 September 2013. As the project is slowly going into its last year, the meeting will be dedicated to questions around the integration and testing of the sensor delivered by SMS and the planning of the big public event in one of the maufacturers' testgrounds where the results of the ARTRAC will be demonstrated.

In ARTRAC, VTT is developing a radar sensor which in the future will allow to measure the road condition (icy or snowy patches, completely frozen or snowed over) and deliver the data to the car's safety control system to be taken into account in its braking estimations.
