The Norwegian Public Roads Administration selects SINUS

28 June 2019

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens Vegvesen) has chosen Triona to supply their innovative software product SINUS Infra for updating the Norwegian national road database (NVDB).

Statens Vegvesen has previously developed all software for the NVDB inhouse. In light of the Norwegian regional reforms and the deployment of a new road reference system they decided on a procurement process with the aim of buying an innovative tool.  Statens Vegvesen chose Triona’s SINUS product which among other things replaces their own inhouse software currently used for data capture in the field.

SINUS Infra can be used both in the office and out in the field and in both cases quality-assured data can be delivered directly to the NVDB, or other infrastructure databases such as TNE (Transport Network Engine), without time-consuming and costly intermediary steps. The mobile solution (field client) is customized for tablets and smartphones and handles all types of GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) so that it meets Statens Vegvesen’s strict requirements when updating to the NVDB.

SINUS Infra can be used by both road operators such as Statens Vegvesen, Nye veier, municipalities, and new regions, as well as contractors obliged to update data to the NVDB as part of their operational contracts.

The SINUS Infra contract with Statens Vegvesen runs for three years, with the option to extend by one year. Together with the contracts they already have with municipalities and contractors Triona is now the leading supplier of products for use with NVDB.
