GPS-enabled hazard identification
Developed in conjunction with the public works department of Clemson, S.C., PinPoint PublicWorks allows drivers to record the location of debris piles, potholes, overhanging trees, and code violations on a touch screen as they drive by. The information is wirelessly transmitted to the office, where a work order including address and job classification is created. PinPoint GeoTech Inc. www.pinpointpublicworks.com.
Wireless tire-monitoring system
The 360HD monitors up to 36 tires in dual-wheel or wide-base single configurations and transmits updates to a monitor in the cab. (For more information about tire-pressure monitors, see “Keep tabs from the cab” on page 21 of our November 2008 issue.) A “sleep” mode withholds warnings until the driver turns the ignition on, while the “fast leak” alarm lets drivers know a flat is coming on. Installation takes about an hour.
