Winter Software

GPS vehicle tracking for the ‘orange Angel’ in the winter service Mr Johannes Windbichler, head of the motorway maintenance depot Alland, is convinced to get an instrument for daily use in winter road maintenance with the system to the GPS vehicle tracking. We asked him his opinion as an expert to the GPS vehicle tracking. What advantages do you have of the usage of the GPS positioning in the winter service? Mr. Windbichler: the current position of the vehicles in the Centre is represented with the GPS positioning. This is a big help to conduct vehicles in case of need, for example traffic jams to evade or to avoid unladen journeys.

Furthermore I can with this identify system irregularities in use and resolve this very quickly by targeted intervention in the emergency organisation or reduce to a minimum. The documentation of the driven missions facilitated data and transit times with exact GPS.” How do you see the development of GPS vehicle tracking in the winter? Mr. Sterling organization addresses the importance of the matter here. Windbichler: above all it is becoming increasingly important, the existing information optimally to use in your own organization. For the ongoing winter service usage, as well as for future improvements. The users in the motorway maintenance depot should use the improved overview for the benefit of motorists. With the experience gained together with the technicians of the system the data organizationally more involve in the headquarters.” Why have you chosen for the GPS tracking system software management company? Mr.

Windbichler: A very good price performance ratio of the provider and of course the essential for the user is first and foremost, that easily can be accessed from any workstation on the tracking software. Technologically, the data and the software safely on your own servers of ASFINAG are hosted and can be networked in the future. Official site: Atreides Management Gavin Baker.

Weather Conditions Pros

Protection when dry, snow-rich, warm, cold, sunny or icy weather. To learn the pros and cons of a Ganzjahresreifens, one must know both summer tires and winter tires in their behavior. The summer tires of the Sommerpneu is durable thanks to his tough rubber compound, because not so much worn in the summertime. The summer tyre is designed so that the tire profile by means of the large blocks has good traction and water effectively can be transported through the narrow grooves to the outside of the tire. Winter tyres winter tyres, however, produced with a soft rubber compound, so that the condition of the tire also at frosty Tempetaturen remains supple and the shovel-like blocks in the underground can dovetail. Also has a wider gap between the individual blocks of winter tyres, so that snow, slush and wet optimally can be transported off to the outside and the tire therefore automatically cleans itself.

The tyre digs itself thus effectively forward – he has as a result a good traction property. The all-rounder of the whole year tires must cope with the multiple challenges of all seasons. For this purpose, the all weather tires need the features of summer and winter tires. A rubber compound is applied at all-season tires therefore, which is completely hard nor soft hardness. As with summer and winter tires the profile grooves ensure that precipitation to the outside of the tire can be redirected worry on the all-weather tires.

In addition to the option of water ableitens, the all-season tires must provide enough footprint in the form of blocks, ensuring optimum traction on the road. Despite close parts he has enough advantages since the all weather tire is a compromise between the summer and winter tires, it has some disadvantages. In contrast to the Sommerpneus, the all-season tires over high heat has a higher wear and at a snowy winter does not get to the grip of a loop. But can an all-season tires in areas with low rainfall and small variations in temperature between the seasons of + 25 C to-7 C on average, like in the lowlands or in some cities, easily be driven. The all weather tyres also to all who are rare with her car, which would therefore not make it is highly recommended within six years a set of summer and winter tyres to depart and to all who could rely on public transportation in extreme weather conditions. The all-season tires can also have positive aspects. The advantages of all-season tires, costs for the second set of tyres, the tyre storage and the tyre change. Not only money can be saved at all-season tires, also more leisure time left at the end of the year, which you would have otherwise spent in the workshop with advice and waiting times during installation.

Weather Tires

Meet the duty of winter tires all weather tires? The last two winters were harsh in Germany. Snow and ice have caused chaos on the roads. The legislature has reacted and introduced the winter tyres compulsory in December 2010. Winter tires are now in winter no longer voluntary, but mandatory. People caught in the winter with summer tyres, pays 40 fine, also added a point in Flensburg, Germany.

It comes through the wrong tires to a traffic obstruction, even 80 and two points are due. Many people have previously waived winter tyres especially for the car. Considering the weather conditions in Germany, so there are of course many more days without ice and snow in winter which can easily take summer tires can be. We leave the car in the snow and ice in the garage, this is actually also a problem. The new transport order that is however not as easy, winter tires are essential. All weather tires as an alternative to winter tires can substitute some all-weather tires the winter tires used for, at least around the law of winter tyres compulsory to comply. Another question, where it arrives here of course also strongly suggest, where you live is whether weather tyres are really suitable for snow and ice. All weather tires with winter admission are usually sufficient for the flat country.

It is important that the all weather tyre of Directive 92/23/EEC correspond to. Are these all weather tire with a M + S symbol and sometimes in addition with the Alpine symbol, a snow flake, marked. You have it is tires, so the all weather tires M + S during a traffic check in winter nothing to worry about. Such all-weather tires approach by the way one often close winter tires on the qualities. Swabs must be made more all weather tires in the summer. Therefore, all weather tires recommend as an alternative to winter tires only for motorists who drive very little, or, for example, for the second car. Summer and winter tires are still the best solution. Who before buying an extra set Shying away from the tire, should bear in mind, keep the tires seasonal change of tyre also twice as long. Two sets of tires, so winter tires and summer tires, are not really more expensive than a single set of tyres. Although initially more money must be invested, over time that evens out but again about twice as long shelf life. Prerequisite is of course that you always properly store your tires. Eva Otter

The shortest braking distance on wet of all the Nokian, 22 metres has less than the worst tires tested by ADAC. Very good on dry pavement”the ADAC verdict” for the Finns. “Very good handling characteristics and a short braking distance on wet road, good properties in the dry” States in the auto motor and sport judgment “. “On dry road is sensational” the Nokian, writes even the car”and praises further: In the snow, he brings good services”. For its low fuel consumption and its low wear of the ADAC give a touch the eco high-performance winter tires each well”, which he has also a high mileage. “On the ice, he is the best, also with good”. Fuel-efficiency winter tyres have also fixed grip in wet and slush between fuel saving and wet adhesion is a trade-off there. A tire is fuel efficient, its weaknesses on wet surfaces are greater. Should you buy no eco-tires, which although saves fuel and has a high mileage, but bad grip on wet Road and snow slush.
