17-01: Integrating Advanced Technologies into Winter Operations Decisions

Problem

There is currently a wide variety of technologies available, both mobile and stationary, with new developments being released so rapidly that state Departments of Transportation find it difficult to integrate them into the decision-making process. On an individual basis, these technologies have been studied and well described, however, Clear Roads is seeking help to determine how best to integrate them on a systems-level.

Objective

The goal of this project is to provide systems-level guidance on the many new technologies available to evaluate road conditions in an integrated blueprint.

Expected Results

Clear Roads is seeking a user-friendly Best Management Practices guide to the technologies available for winter maintenance operations; what these technologies measure; how to integrate them into a successful winter maintenance operations strategy; and recommendations on how to incorporate future technologies into the strategy.
