Implementing next-generation maintenance vehicle technology Smithson, Leland

By: Smithson, LelandPublication details: Transportation Research Board, 2001; Conference proceeding 23, Description: nr 23, s. 222-30Subject(s): USA | Conference | Winter maintenance | Intelligent transport system | Snow clearance equipment | Weather | Forecast | 71Bibl.nr: VTI P9000:23Location: Abstract: Transportation agencies are facing ever-increasing demands from the customers they serve for safer, faster, and more reliable transportation systems. This is especially true for highway transportation because nearly all trips begin and end using the roadway. To add to the challenge, most public agencies are being asked to downsize, improve efficiency and effectiveness, and provide real-time status of the roadway system so that the motoring public can make better travel plans and decisions. The progress is described that three Midwest states are making on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of snow and ice control operations with improved equipment, road/weather forecasting, and interfacing with the National Intelligent Transportation System Architecture for improved customer communication.
