The Town of Castle Rock is always looking for ways to improve services provided to its residents. The recent deployment of PlowOps, its semi-custom snow plow tracking system, helped with that initiative. The solution was developed by NeoTreks to specifically meet the town’s plow tracking needs.
The Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) uses NeoTreks Plow Ops to make road, weather and critical incident reporting safer, easier and more efficient. Initially launched on 60 plows in 2014, WYDOT built on the success of its initial deployment to launch more than 250 plows for winter 2016. Documented wins around public safety and internal efficiencies include: Plow operators who use NeoTreks Plow Ops have been able to report twice the number of road condition reports compared to traditional radio communications. Plow operators are able to submit three times the number of Variable Speed Limit (VSL) requests compared to traditional radio communications. NeoTreks Plow Ops improves the efficiency of WYDOT Transportation Management Center (TMC) operations, resulting in a reduction of weather-related costs by saving more than 2,000 man-hours a year. “By improving the timeliness and accuracy of reporting road conditions, NeoTreks Plow Ops aims to reduce vehicle crashes, injuries and fatalities for…
IDOT is using Vehicle Data Logger (VDL) GPS technology in their fleet to better monitor road conditions and manage their response. The system tracks where the trucks are and then indicates if and when an area has been plowed.
