WYOMING DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION
Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) is responsible for keeping roads and highways clear of snow across more than 93,000 square miles of remote, and often treacherous, terrain. In 2009, WYDOT implemented the CompassCom Mobile Resource Management (MRM) solution (sometimes referred to as Automatic Vehicle Location or AVL) with a primary goal of enhancing the safety of travelers and state personnel during winter storms. The department complemented the MRM with mobile tablets that allow plow drivers and supervisors to respond quickly to weather-related incidents and report them directly to the public as needed.
