National CVISN Deployment Program

The research objective of Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks (CVISN) is to provide technologies and improve efficiency of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) inspections, productivity of commercial vehicles and carriers, and enhancement of the safety of CMVs. Expanded CVISN Program provides additional functionalities in the areas of improved data quality of the safety information, driver information, electronic screening at virtual weigh stations, and other information technologies and intelligent transportation systems. This initiative will address specific problems: automatic vehicle identification at the roadside, achieving commonalities, standardization and consistencies in real-time information exchange, electronic payment of credentials, identifying the small number of rogue carriers and vehicles among a vast sea of law-abiding carriers and vehicles, and updating the CVISN Architecture and associated standards as the commercial vehicle-related extension of the National Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) Architecture.
