MCV Winter Maintenance Functional Area
'MCV Winter Maintenance' supports snow plow operations and other roadway treatments (e.g., salt spraying and other material applications). It supports communications with the center to receive information and instructions that are provided to the vehicle operator and also supports remote control of on–board systems. It tracks operational status of snow and ice control operations and provides this information back to the center.
|01||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall track the vehicle's location and status of safety systems on–board the winter maintenance vehicle.|
|02||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall respond to control information from the center to allow remote operation of the on–board vehicle systems. These systems include winter maintenance equipment for plowing, treating, and anti–icing.|
|03||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall monitor winter maintenance materials information including remaining quantity and current application rate of materials on the vehicle.|
|04||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall respond to winter maintenance dispatch information from the center, presented to the vehicle operator for acknowledgement and returning status.|
|05||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall send operational data to the center including the operational state of the winter maintenance equipment (e.g., blade up/down, spreader pattern), types and quantities of materials used for construction and maintenance activities, and a record of the actual work performed.|
|06||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall exchange operational and environmental data with other maintenance and construction vehicles. Operational data includes operational state of the maintenance equipment (e.g., blade up/down, spreader pattern, equipment configuration) and a record of the actual work performed while the environmental data includes environmental sensor data collected on–board a maintenance and construction vehicle, either raw or processed data.|
