Quarterhill subsidiary International Road Dynamics (IRD) has been awarded a new five-year contract valued at up to US$4 million (CA$5 million) by the British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure for the continuation of maintenance and services for the Weigh2GoBC Program.
The contract also includes options for enhancements and upgrades and for the provision of Weigh2GoBC software, hardware and implementation services to be deployed to additional sites to expand the system network.
Weigh2GoBC is a network of weigh-in-motion and automatic vehicle identification technologies designed to enable more efficient movement of commercial vehicles throughout the province. Once a commercial vehicle (equipped with a transponder) in the Weigh2GoBC Program has been initially checked at a Weigh2GoBC enabled station, it can be given a bypass at all subsequent inspection stations for up to the next 24 hours.
IRD has provided the on-site technology, software, integration, and maintenance/service for all the Weigh2GoBC sites. There are 11 locations throughout the province, and the Ministry has plans for additional sites.
