SnowPlow IoTDM

Know road conditions with real­time tracking of snow plows and weather updates.

iPhone code repo: https://github.com/barrasso/Snow-Plow-ODL

Components:

  • DMo

  • Google API web app

  • Mobile app

  • ODL data store (IoTDM)

Problem:

  • Intense snowfall in cities (like Boston) causes congestion and frustration

  • Traditional methods are slow and inefficient in clearing roadways

Solution:

  • Devices are carried by municipal snow plows to track paths/locations
  • These devices also get data from weather API to store precipitation values and severity
  • Web app creates a visualization of the data on a Google Map instance that shows the real­time snow fall and the affect it has on paths cleared by snow plows

Value Proposition:

  • Cities can track and optimize snow plow paths to clear roadways more effectively

  • Users can see which roads are cleared and which ones aren’t to better plan their commute

  • Cost effective and easy to adopt for cities
