Automated spraying of antifreeze using location information

This system is a device that automatically controls spraying by linking the GPS position information with the spraying device for antifreeze. In the system, the work contents of "spray amount", "spread width", and "spray start / stop" of the deicing agent according to the road structure such as tunnels and bridges are registered in advance, and the operator will actually By simply setting the "work section" to run, you can perform the work of spraying the deicing agent accurately.

In addition, even when operating manually, multiple operating devices installed in the driver's seat are integrated into one screen, enabling one-touch operation.

Introduction of automatic deicing agent system (ISCOS)

ISCOS uses the road surface identification data obtained from CAIS® to determine the optimal amount of the antifreeze to be sprayed, and automatically controls the spraying area and amount by the antifreeze automatic spraying device, and adapts to the road surface conditions. This is the world's first technology to achieve automatic spraying.

  • [Overview of CAIS®]

    Based on the characteristic vibration waveform according to the road surface condition obtained from the acceleration sensor inside the tire, the road surface such as freezing / wetting is determined.

  • 2 CAIS (Contact Area Information Sensing): Bridgestone Corporation patented technology

[Overview of ISCOS]

The results of the road surface discrimination of CAIS® are transmitted in real time to a web server via the Internet, and a database is constructed. By accessing the web based on the data, it is possible to calculate the optimal amount of spraying according to the road surface condition every 100m. The antifreeze sprayer equipped with an automatic sprayer automatically accesses the web and downloads road surface data. The deicing sprayer automatically sprays just by running.

Introduction and utilization of Road Zipper® System

NEXCO EAST Group,
  • "Improvement of safety" by completely separating traffic lane and work area by concrete protection fence in construction regulations
  • "Improvement of work efficiency" of the entire construction by quickly implementing regulations such as switching lane regulations
  • `` Restriction on construction regulation congestion '' by changing the construction regulation range and the number of traffic lanes according to the time of day when customers frequently use

We have introduced and utilize Road Zipper®System for the purpose.

Outline of Road Zipper®System

The Road Zipper® System is a system that allows the position of the concrete protective fence (Concrete Reactive Tension System) to be moved by a dedicated protective fence switching vehicle (BTM).

Introduction of Road Zipper® System

Road Zipper®System is, the United States Lindsay Transportation Sales & Service LLC of (the United States) (hereinafter referred to as "LINDSAY Company") and is sold development, manufacturing, and, currently, in Japan (Ltd.)NEXCO East Innovation & Communications (NI & C) Sells and leases in Japan.

It should be noted that, when the Japan introduction of the Road Zipper®System, NEXCO in the East, has been carried out to confirm verification of the impact of the vehicle according to the present system, we have confirmed the usefulness in comparison with the regulation method according to the conventional Rabakon .
