Saber, a highway condition and inventory specialist, has developed new skid analysis software to help reduce the risk of road traffic accidents. The map-based software analyses data collected by Saber’s fleet of specialist road survey vehicles that measure levels of skid resistance in wet conditions. Called SKIDAnalyser, and provided online as a Software-as-Service, the system is an industry-first development that uses Google Maps to display data spatially and includes a tablet app for site investigations.
Saber’s SKIDAnalyser is part of a suite of software tools for managing highway survey data. Through rapid cloud data processing and communication, raw data from surveys becomes available within days of collection, alerting highway authorities to road surfaces that need urgent remedial work to improve road safety.
