ROSTMOS (Road state monitoring system)

The project objective is to develop a system for the registration / verification of road state that with high precision can monitor the condition of the road network in real-time.

The project will demonstrate how road state data can be collected and linked with other information such as weather conditions and operational measures in the form of snow clearing and gritting. It will also be shown how road state data can be used to improve the prognosis for the development in the driving conditions.

REHIRUP (Reducing highway runoff pollution)

The aim is that the project shall lead to improved pollutant retention efficiencies, enhanced degradation of organic pollutants, optimized multiple use of the land utilized for runoff management, and a better utilization of resources. All these goals are to be reached in an improved environmentally and economically sustainable way. Pollution control and services to local ecosystems must be seen in a perspective where the complex interactions between pollutant sources, runoff, treatment, impacts, and services are addressed holistically and secured against impacts of future climate change.

HERO (Heating Road with Stored Solar Energi)

The overall aim is to reduce accidents and improve accessibility caused by snow and ice. Furthermore, the technical design and different materials for various applications will be investigated, and the purpose is also to optimize the system performance for the road together with heat source and to develop the control and regulation of the energy demand, which along with climate forecast is of fundamental importance for the functioning, effectiveness and efficiency.

RMMS (Road Markings Management System)

The aim of the project is to design and develop a user friendly asset management system for road markings.  The purpose with the system is to provide road administrations with a robust tool for performing better maintenance strategies and secure that the resources available are used where it is most needed.

ROMA (State assessment of road markings in the Nordic countries)

The visibility of a road marking is dependent of its retroreflectivity. therefore, in order to ensure good visibility, there is a need of adequate maintenance routines. Furthermore, the road marking material must be of high quality, i.e. be resistant against wear from the traffic.

The purpose of the study is to ensure good road marking visibility. If there is a difference in visibility between two or more coutries, this result should be explained. Is the difference due to the road marking material, maintenance routines, road marking area ect.? Moreover, the result can be used to distribute maintenance funds in such a way that the road marking quality will be similar in all countries.

NordLCA (Life Cycle Analyses Tools to Assess Climate Impact of Road Building)

Reduction of climate impact is highly prioritized, but we need methods and tools that help good decisions and choices through all processes from planning to designing and construction further to operation and maintenance. Existing tools have different background in their development because of their aim. They stand well alone but would gain of cross-linking. 
 
The Nordic countries have largely similar conditions in terms of road construction, raw materials and machinery. We therefore wish to further develop and link the respective Nordic tools, and create national adaptations. 
 
Possible applications of the tools are:
Environmental budget to be used by NRA internally
Tender procedures (requirement or award criterion)
Accounting for environment after/during construction

​EPAS 2

The aim of EPAS 2 is to provide the road authorities with improved  knowledge based decision making within the field of winter maintenance (equipment, driving speed and use of salt). The project should provide answers on how to re-design the salt spreaders so that improved aerodynamics will allow higher speed.

The project will develop a new mobile test unit which may quantify the discharge pattern and reproduce results over time
