Description

Research and development services for a snowplow operator guide system to be used in very low, or zero, visibility (white-out) conditions. This acquisition shall cover Phase I of the effort, which will focus on identifying related current and proposed research, identification of applicable & proven GPS, 3-D imaging, mapping and computer user-display technologies, and integrating such technologies into a functional system.  Research will also include determining what barriers exist (operator or otherwise)in the widespread adoption of previous guidance systems.  Augmented Reality (AR) digital imaging, global positioning systems (GPS), and three dimensional mapping are all currently available technologies. This project will investigate integrating these into a specialized vehicle operator guidance system, with the goal of developing a reliable and economically viable safety and productivity tool for agencies that perform maintenance snowplowing operations.

Estimated Dollar Range:  Over $500,000 to $3 million
