The advantage of a cooperative RHW service using infrastructure-to-vehicle communication is twofold. First, the replacement of expensive vehicle-sensors by cooperative technology enables vehicles without such sensors to be aware of road hazards. Second, the service has already an impact with low market penetration as the hazards are detected and announced by the infrastructure. The general advantages of the RHW service are: timely and continuous availability of road hazard information, reduction of delays and false alarms, and spatial and temporal flexibility.
