In-house experts and state-of-the-art scientific and computing technologies are used to diagnose and predict weather conditions at very fine spatial and temporal scales. This includes:
HiCAPS™ stands for Highway Condition Analysis and Prediction System (HiCAPS™). This was developed by Iteris and is the industries only model to take into account BOTH Energy and Mass.
This means that when moisture (as snow, rain, frost, dew) is deposited onto the road it also transfers energy to or from the road, and that evaporation and/or sublimation of moisture from the road requires the road to have an adequate amount of energy available to support those processes.
