Safety with Automatic Intelligent Locator (SAIL) - Phase 2


Project Description


The SAIL 2 project was an extension of SAIL 1 to further assess the application of Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems for gaining value in overall snow fighting techniques, decision support systems, and area-wide highway maintenance issues for winter and summer operations by deployment of fully functional AVL systems. AVL systems were installed on 60 snow removal/highway maintenance vehicles within several Mn/DOT districts in the State of Minnesota. The project was unique from other AVL projects because of the design and planning for integration with Mn/DOT’s existing resource management systems.
