Truck Weigh-in-Motion Statistical Analysis

The objective of this research project is to determine the probability distribution of truck weights full or empty from weigh-in-motion data. Truck weights from weigh-in-motion data do not separate full trucks from empty trucks, as it is not usually possible to directly observe any truck's payload. Thus, truck weights follow a bimodal probability distribution. This study will use statistical methods to separate full trucks from empty trucks, thereby producing two probability distributions. The study will use Wisconsin data.
