ICE-DETECTION SYSTEM EVALUATION. FINAL REPORT

This evaluation consisted of interviews with SCAN ice-detection system users and evaluations of the manpower and material savings associated with the use of the system as well as the possible influences the system may have on accidents which occur during winter conditions. It appears that salt/sand usage and overtime costs have been reduced by the use of the SCAN system. Anecdotal information suggests that there have been fewer winter accidents at one instrumented site. The system provides relevant information to maintenance decision makers. The overall effectiveness of the system is dependent on how users accept and will use the information.
