What is the fleet management system?
A fleet management system is a system to monitor vehicles of all kinds (e.g. snow groomer, truck, skidoo) in a ski resort. Vehicle data such as fuel consumption, driving time and location are determined. The data is then displayed in an overview and can be called up via computer.
The SNOWsat snow management system makes it possible to stay in lane even in poor visibility and always know exactly where the snow groomer is and where the other groomers are. This prevents dangerous departures from the piste in poor visibility and collisions with other snow groomers. At the same time, the system measures the snow depths and can also display tracks that have already been skied, edges of the slope, obstacles such as buildings, lift supports or snow guns.
This is how the preparation report is created
And this is how the preparation report on the Stubai Glacier is created. The SNOWsat system records the GPS data of all skied tracks. The runs of all snow groomers are summarized on a map and played out on the website.
What machines are in use at Stubai Glacier?
On the Stubai Glacier, 15 Pistenbully snow groomers and one Prinroth vehicle are in use for preparing the slopes. Five vehicles are equipped with a snow depth measurement system.
