One overloaded truck causes as much damage to the roads as almost 30,000 PASSENGER CARS. Weigh‑In‑Motion by CAMEA represents a solution to this by monitoring and eliminating such trucks. In addition, it contributes to traffic fluency and road safety.
Positive Effects of CAMEA WIM
Heavy vehicles are the most significant factor in damaging roads. Making sure they are loaded properly is key for road preservation.
Weighing in motion helps eliminate problems of long queuing on weigh stations and slow heavy vehicles influencing traffic flow.
Together with integrated speed enforcement, weighing trucks shortens the potential braking distance of large vehicles. Optional vehicle dimension measurement can also protect bridges and tunnels from damage.
CAMEA Weigh-in-Motion is in principal applied in three ways. First approach is weighing for the purpose of collecting traffic stats, other two consist in protecting roads through enforcing, either using a complementary static scale, or directly.
The statistics application provides traffic data such as vehicle count, high number of vehicle classes or axle width. Unlike traffic counters and classifiers, road stress is not estimated, but based on actual weighing (ESAL). Overloaded vehicles are the ones causing the most damage, which means detecting them is the key to proper infrastructure planning and maintenance management.
Some situations call for highly precise weighing of vehicles on a static or low-speed scale. The pre-selection application enables to check the vehicle number and to pick the potentially overloaded truck to be further measured. Therefore, all vehicles are controlled and no time-wasting queues appear.
The most advanced solution provides precise weighing, accurate traffic data collection and classification. Multi-lane bi-directional free flow monitoring allows weighing trucks at full speed. Costs go down - no static scale has to be built, no staff has to be employed. Overloaded trucks are penalized by sending a bill, traffic fluency is not harmed at all.
