Weight Enforcement is vital to minimize the damage caused by overloaded vehicles to roads and highways, and to increase safety for the operators. Detection of these vehicles at high-speeds (HSWIM) is an efficient and effective method for screening for enforcement or pre-selection of vehicles for static weigh stations.
Screening for Enforcement in the United States
|Typical Sensor Configuration
Strip sensors for pre-selection or screening for enforcement incorporate strain gauge sensor technology:
Regions can have different requirements for accuracy of systems employed in screening for enforcement WIM systems. COST 323 A(5) and COST 323 B+(7) are commonly referenced for these screening for enforcement sites. Six sensor (three pairs) have been used in some countries for these applications.
Intercomp strip sensors are also used in data collection, tolling (ETC), ports of entry or departure, and bridge and pavement protection.
