International Road Dynamics (IRD) is to design and install 20 lanes of Weigh in Motion (WiM) covering six sites on arterial roads around Kiev, Ukraine.
The $6.4 million project is seeking to provide a modular system comprised of software, hardware and communication infrastructure for the State Agency of Automobile Roads of Ukraine.
The WIM back-office system will collect real-time traffic data and support the enforcement of overweight and over-dimension vehicles as well as those which may be in violation of local operating regulations. Also, the data will be used for more streamlined planning of maintenance and repair of the road network.
IRD will supply and supervise the installation of its WIM systems with technologies such as vehicle dimensioning systems and off-scale detection.
According to IRD, this will provide real-time information on a vehicle’s length, width, height and lane position in addition to axle load and gross vehicle weights.
The project will be carried out in collaboration with technology firm SEA Electronics and road construction company Automagistral-Pivden.
