Snowy roads also in southern Finland. IntrinWay supports the road maintenance decision making

The winter season and the winter road maintenance are on in whole Finland. IntrinWay is a road weather visualization and decision support system for road maintenance professionals as well as for traffic centres and research units.

The road maintenance professionals are working 7/24 to ensure safe driving conditions for all the road users. This means continuous real-time road weather monitoring, decisions and actions taken by the maintenance pros.

To ensure road safety is the first priority, but the right decisions on the maintenance actions also help to optimize the maintenance costs, for example by minimizing the usage of salt. IntrinWay is the tool to help with this task.

Many new features in IntrinWay helps you to find the right information even more easily than before. For example, the map shortcuts and further enhancements in weather camera picture exploration. Please contact Intrinsic or download a fact sheet for more information.

Winter conditions are out there and maintenance is on in Finland from south to north. Check the snowy scenes in the IntrinWay weather camera pictures from Espoo and Tammisaari in southern Finland.

The City of Tampere announces IoT guidelines, Intrinsic participating the specification work

IoT has an important role in the coming IT-projects of The City of Tampere. Effective utilization of the information from IoT-systems makes it possible to produce city services in a cost effective way. The City of Tampere has released a guideline document to help the city staff and other stakeholders in data openness, utilization and authorization in the coming IT-projects.

Intrinsic participated in the guideline specification work from the beginning. Intrinsic has an extensive experiment in supplying systems for demanding information collection combined with database information management, information analyses and end-user applications to visualize the analysed information.

The guideline is an open document and available for everybody. You can find more info behind this link.

The city of Tampere is preparing for IoT

The city of Tampere is developing a model for IoT projects. The development work is a co-operation between Smart Tampere organization and companies operating in this field. The aim is to create a Smart City IoT project specification which includes the IoT reference architecture and policies for data licencing and interfaces. The document works as a guideline in planning, designing and procurement of the coming IoT projects of the city of Tampere.

In a large organization the information systems tends to form silos, i.e. individual systems that are unable to operate with any other systems. This results inefficiency in administration and operations of the city. And at the end this can effect in the quality of public services. The unified IoT specification is one tool to avoid building silos in the future projects. The city will also publish part of the coming IoT data sets as open data. This enables companies to develop products and services based on the data provided by the city.

The development work is done in workshops including experts from the city and the companies. The city is responsible for the business know-how and the restrictions. The companies brings in their expertise in the different areas of IoT. The specification document is planned to be ready for publication in February 2018 and is then available for everybody. Intrinsic is participating in the development work.
