Snow removal is one of the top challenges for municipalities located in this part of the country. A five-year pilot study showed that using GTT’s Opticom solution enabled the St. Cloud (MN) Public Works Department to remove snow 22% faster while cutting fuel consumption.

Opticom has been used for years by cities for emergency vehicle preemption (EVP) and transit signal priority (TSP). But now it’s being successfully adapted for use in snow removal. The solution enables snowplows to reach their destinations more rapidly and remove snow more efficiently.

It also improves safety for snowplow operators and other drivers on the road by granting the right-of-way to snowplows as they approach intersections. As you know, it’s difficult stopping these heavy trucks, especially on roads covered with snow and ice.

Now is the time to start preparing for next winter. Please let us know if you’re interested in learning more about how Opticom could optimize your snow removal and make winter commuting for drivers safer and easier
