GPS winter maintenance reporting system earns award

By |  March 12, 2014

The Work Truck Show 2014 Innovation Award was presented to Cirus Controls for its GPS DataSmart winter maintenance reporting system. GPS DataSmart beat out more than 115 other new products to win the award at The Work Truck Show 2014, which was held March 5-7 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.

All products entered in the Work Truck Show’s New Product Spotlight and New Product Media Guide were eligible for the Innovation Award. A panel of fleet managers and trade media editors judged the entries based on their innovativeness. GPS DataSmart was selected in part because it combined several features to offer winter maintenance fleet operators solutions.

According to a press release, GPS DataSmart analyzes information collected by sensors on snow-fighting vehicles. It tracks vehicle position, ground speed, plow position, air and road surface temperatures and all spreader operations, including materials dispensed. Using this information, GPS DataSmart generates route maps and compiles reports to help managers reduce material and labor costs, optimize road-clearing performance, improve operator safety and monitor sites that may need additional maintenance.
