The customer

The Customer

  • Burlington Department of Public Works (BDPW)

    • Responsible for approximately:

      • 240 lane-miles of road

      • 220 miles of sidewalk

    • 14 Full time employees working within the Right of Way (R.O.W.) workgroup

    • Fleet:

      • 10 Full-sized Trucks with Wing Plows

      • 3 Mid-Sized Trucks

      • 3 Bucket Loaders

      • 12 Sidewalk Tractors


The problem

The Problem

  • Develop an operational tracking system for BDPW’s fleet of Snow Removal and Deicing Vehicles

    • System must be real time

    • Collect data for:

      • Position (GPS)

      • Speed

      • Salt Spreading

      • Temperature (Road and Ambient)

      • Plow Engagement

    • All data sent back to BDPW real-time

    • Data Displayed in Easily Readable Format For BDPW Customer Support and Management


Motivation for tracking system

Motivation For Tracking System

  • No Real-Time Accountability For Road and Sidewalk Clearing

    • Better Response Customer Inquiries

    • Alter Deployment to Respond to Varying Conditions

  • Analyze Clearing Schemes For Improved Response


Potential solution data collection

Potential Solution: Data Collection

  • Cirus Controls SpreadSmart RxTM

    • Collects Data For:

      • Position via GPS

      • Speed

      • Salt Spreading

      • Temperature (Road and Ambient)

      • Plow Engagement

    • Drive-By Download of Data via Wi-Fi Router

      • Not Real-Time

    • Scalable

    • Maintainable Long-Term


Potential solution data collection1

Potential Solution: Data Collection

  • Motorola Digital Mobile Radio

    • Tracks Location (GPS)

    • Sends Data Over Digital Radio Channel

      • Real-time

      • Service Charge to use radio network

    • Limited capabilities for integration with other sensors

    • Scalable


Our solution

Our Solution

  • Integrate Cirus Controls Logger System with Broadband Enabled Ruggedized Tablet PC

    • Real-Time

    • Sensor Integration with Logger Already Established

    • Ruggedized Tablet PC to withstand harsh operating environment
