This paper presents a Norwegian pilot on the use of a cooperative ITS (C-ITS) service for road status information data in winter maintenance operations. Approximately 500 ordinary production Volvo vehicles are used as a sensor for data collection and estimation of slippery roads, with the aim of improving winter maintenance in terms of cost efficiency and quality. Cooperation and interaction between the road authorities and the car industry is also expected to be conducive to further development and investment in future C-ITS services. After a short introduction, the paper presents a concept description and the objectives of the application, followed by a presentation of the pilot study and the evaluation framework used for assessing the quality and impacts of the C-ITS service. In conclusion, the expected results and outcome of the project are presented, along with a brief description of the underlying mechanisms causing the expected effects.
