HiCAPS™ Pavement Model Features:

HiCAPS™ stands for Highway Condition Analysis and Prediction System (HiCAPS™). This was developed by Iteris and is the industries only model to take into account BOTH Energy and Mass.

This means that when moisture (as snow, rain, frost, dew) is deposited onto the road it also transfers energy to or from the road, and that evaporation and/or sublimation of moisture from the road requires the road to have an adequate amount of energy available to support those processes.

  • Accounts for previous and ongoing maintenance actions (reported manually or via AVL/MDC Technologies)
  • Differentiates between concrete and asphalt surfaces
  • Integration of micro-climate process associated with the roadway environment
  • Blowing snow impacts
  • Traffic
  • RWIS data adjustments
