|4||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall respond to dispatch information from the center, presented to the vehicle operator for acknowledgement and returning status.|
|5||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall send operational data to the center including the operational state of the maintenance equipment (e.g., blade up/down, spreader pattern), types and quantities of materials used for construction and maintenance activities, and a record of the actual work performed.|
|6||The maintenance and construction vehicle shall exchange operational and environmental data with other maintenance and construction vehicles. Operational data includes operational state of the maintenance equipment (e.g., blade up/down, spreader pattern, equipment configuration) and a record of the actual work performed while the environmental data includes environmental sensor data collected on-board a maintenance and construction vehicle, either raw or processed data.|
