Technology: Plug-and-Play Initiative

Sensors and other devices used on winter maintenance vehicles are often provided by different vendors, each with their own proprietary communication protocols and data formats. It is costly and time-intensive to integrate the different systems into one data stream. To help address this issue, Clear Roads has undertaken an initiative to develop a standard protocol and specification that will allow plug-and-play connectivity among vendors who follow the protocol.
