Development of a Virtual Weigh Station

This project will evaluate ways to improve the current traffic data collection system. The usability, cost, and maintenance will be evaluated along with the accuracy of a new weigh in motion (WIM) system. The present piezo system will also be directly compared to that of another WIM system. Additionally, this project will investigate a way to provide the AHP with an enforcement tool to curb overweight vehicles that may take alternative routes to avoid weigh stations.
