weigh in motion

The need for cost-effective in-land bulk transport has resulted in larger trucks carrying heavier loads resulting in degradation of the road surfaces. The weigh-in-motion system allows the traffic to flow as well as flagging offending heavy vehicles. Weigh-in-motion determines the weight of an axle to a high resolution of Gross Mass Weight and as all lanes are monitored, means that trucks cannot avoid the system. The system also fulfils functions such as classification, data recording and speed monitoring.
