Highway Fog Warning System The need for a highway fog warning system has long been internation-ally recognized. The need for a highway fog warning system has long been internationally recognized. With such a system, motorists can avoid tragic pile-up accidents caused by dense or patchy fog.

The development of a cost-effective highway visibility sensor that measures the density of roadway fog and is linked to traveler information systems could. In response the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) contracted ICx Transportation to build and integrate a fog detection and warning system along a mile section of the California Highway 99 corridor in the central part of the state.

The system was completed in dense fog has often been a cause of tragic road accidents. the development of a cost effective highway fog detection system which monitors road visibility and provides warnings to motorists through roadside displays or radio communication is proposed for dot fh7. the proposed optical sensor measures scattered light from fog particles.

InFHWA (Federal Highway Administration) conducted a study to develop a low-cost, reliable fog sensor (Highway Fog Warning System, ). A number of sensors were designed and fabricated, laboratory tested, and then used in field tests.

After a review of available technology, it was decided that a fog detection and warning system should be implemented to augment safety practices carried out by the Tennessee Highway Patrol. The planning and design process of the system was aided by a review of a low visibility warning system located in Charleston, South Carolina.

The Emergency Response Guidebook provides first responders with a go-to manual to help deal with hazmat transportation accidents during the critical first 30 minutes. Distribution DOT's goal is to place an ERG in every public emergency service vehicle nationwide.
