system, perhaps developed by a different vendor, to dispense freeze-point depressants the instant that snow or icing conditions are detected on the road surface. Likewise, with sensors deployed according to agreed-upon standards in a coherent network over one or more jurisdictions, more sophisticated mesoscale modeling solutions could be pursued. Indeed, ITS provides a framework with which to extend road weather and other services in a fully integrated fashion across the nation, and eventually, throughout North America.
