weigh in motion

The increased need for cost-effective in-land bulk transport has resulted in larger trucks carrying heavier loads resulting in degradation of 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 because all lanes are monitored, trucks cannot avoid the system. The system also fulfils functions such as classification, data recording and speed monitoring.
