Paper Abstract

The radio-optical technique for determination of the road surface condition is proposed. In the optical part the road surface condition is determined by the depolarization degree of linearly polarized radiation reflected from the road surface. The paper describes the results of model tests on asphalt covered with snow, ice and snow-water mixture. The radiowave part of the setup makes it possible to detect the presence of ice under snow layer.
