ISU researchers developing navigation system for snowplows

Driving snowplows in blizzard conditions can be very dangerous. At times the whiteout conditions are so bad that it's difficult to see where the road is located. That even applies to the vehicles and drivers assigned to clear the roadways. It's a problem that researchers at Iowa State are trying to solve. To do so, they're developing a GPS navigation system that would work on existing snowplows. The navigation system is designed to show the the plows on the road, and warn the drivers if they start to veer off the road. The goal is the make the project safe and cost-efficient, allowing snowplows and drivers to clear roadways and make it safe for everyone else on the roads as well. For more information, visit
