Research Planning for Caltrans Emergency Maintenance Response

As part of the state's emergency management system, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is responsible for managing its rapid response forces and maintaining the safety of its personnel, equipment and the public and will need to use all available technology to carry out those responsibilities. This report outlines requirements for a research prototype system for an emergency maintenance response communications system in California. Winter maintenance is used as a scenario for developing the prototype system. Technologies to be employed include data over cellular networks, GPS in smartphones, data over other existing Caltrans channels, wi-fi, deployable rural research technologies, and commodity open-source software and collaboration methodologies.
