Weigh-in-motion is a technology that can be used for various private and public purposes (i.e. applications) related to the weights and axle loads of road and rail vehicles. WIM systems are installed on the road or rail track or on a vehicle and measure, store and provide data from the traffic flow and/or the specific vehicle.

Smart materials are promising technologies for reducing the instrumentation cost required to continuously monitor road infrastructures, by transforming roadways into multifunctional elements capable of self-sensing. This study investigates a novel algorithm empowering smart pavements with weigh-in-motion (WIM) characterization capabilities.

The application domain of interest is Author: Hasan Borke Birgin, Simon Laflamme, Antonella D’Alessandro, Enrique Garcia-Macias, Filippo Ubertini. We sit down with you and study your process to find ways to fully integrate our weigh-in-motion scales to provide reliable, real-time weighing of your products as they travel down your lines.

In many cases, we can completely eliminate separate weighing stations and procedures, helping you save time, space and ultimately money. Evaluating Weigh-in-Motion Systems for Accuracy and Durability What Was the Need. MnDOT’s Office of Transportation System Management currently uses weigh-in-motion (WIM) system components from two manufacturers: International Road Dynamics (IRD) and Kistler.

developed a robust weigh-in-motion (WIM) data management system that supports a broad array of vehicle weight regulation and enforcement activities, as well as long-term planning and decisionmaking. The system, which Dutch officials describe as “a better way of doing business,” has potential for application in U.S.

states that want to. In this review, the common algorithms for bridge weigh-in-motion are discussed in detail, and the typical instrumentation of bridge weigh-in-motion systems is also introduced.

A weigh-in-motion system is a set of devices that record and measure the weight of trucks and other vehicles as they pass by. It enables road traffic control agencies, public administrators, bridge designers and research organisations, among others, to obtain reliable gross weight and the axle weight information from any static or moving vehicle.
