This report presents an Advanced Snowplow (ASP) system which includes lane position indication and lane departure warning, in addition to a forward collision warning system. The technology was tested on the California Advanced Winter Maintenance Testbed on Intersate 80 near Donner Summit. It was also tested for two weeks at a simliar site on U S180 near Flagstaff, Arizona. The report delivers an introduction to the problem, and overview of the system hardware and software. A detailed discussion of the human-machine interface, the magnetic sensing system, and the collision warning system is also presented.
