Join OneRain and sister company, High Sierra Electronics, for this joint live webinar where we’ll explore the latest smart road weather technologies and tools that can help you better plan, operate, and inform the public during severe weather events.
Weather can impact roads at any time of the year and at a moment’s notice. From large winter storms to quick flash flooding, weather events present unique challenges for anyone responsible for maintaining roads and safe driving conditions. Impacts can range from minor traffic delays to life-threatening situations for motorists and workers alike. Many weather conditions, including heavy precipitation, fog, snow, freezing temperatures, and high winds, can lead to dangerous hazards for motorists and cause costly weather-related traffic delays.
In this webinar, a complete road hazard approach will be presented that gives transportation managers and decisions makers all the information they need for any weather-related impact on their roads, as well as automatically alerting motorists of hazardous situations. This complete hazard approach can also be extended into other areas for an agency that needs to respond to weather-related events, including stormwater, flood warning systems, airport operations, and more.
During this webinar we will:
- Look at all the ways in which weather can impact roads, including winter weather and flooding
- Examine approaches to building a combined hazardous weather solution
- Discuss how these systems work and the benefits of a combined road weather solution
- Present an overview of the “all hazards” approach taken by the City of Alexandria, Virginia
- Review lessons learned from implementing these systems
Extreme rainfall and flooding events put our real-time monitoring systems to the test and help us all learn what works well during an event (and what doesn’t). Our assessments in the aftermath of such storms are what drive us to make our systems stronger and smarter.
Contrail Analytics is just one of the resources we use to perform the data analyses that helps us understand what occurred during a storm event, how well gauges worked and how well our hydro-meteorological data reporting systems performed.
Contrail Analytics comprises a suite of integrated data-analysis tools that extends the power of Contrail. This comprehensive toolset allows you to quickly analyze Contrail data sets, identify and highlight trends and changes, and helps you to gain true insight into the performance of your hydromet sensor network. Explore how Contrail Analytics provides the analyses you need to make better decisions and improve the management of your hydromet network. During this training session, we’ll look at:
- Rainfall Intensity Reports
- Mass Balance Rainfall Analysis
- Sensor Network Performance Monitoring
- Bulk Exporting of Event Data
- Time Series Data Export
Note: Contrail Analytics is not available with Contrail Shared Web.
Contrail Inventory helps you manage and keep track of your sensor network equipment and hardware via your desktop or mobile device from anywhere you have an Internet connection. It’s included as configurable module with your Contrail license.
In this training session, we’ll explore how you can document and verify maintenance procedures, and plan, schedule, and monitor all your maintenance activities from within Contrail.
The Maintenance Management module with Contrail Inventory plus handles the creation of Work Orders, Tasks, and scheduling of routine, preventative, and emergency maintenance activities of any inventory item in the system, giving you the ability to manage all of your maintenance operations in one place.
