International Road Dynamics (IRD) is to install its Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) sorting system to protect road infrastructure in the US state of South Dakota.
The $1.3 million deal is part of a wider ambition from the South Dakota Department of Transportation to deploy more WIM systems throughout the state.
The Port of Entry Commercial Vehicle WIM Sorting System is scheduled to be operational by December 2019 at the Valley Springs Port of Entry on Interstate 90 east of Sioux Falls. It is expected to weigh all commercial vehicles, capture number plate numbers and direct suspected violators to report to a nearby truck inspection station. The solution will use IRD’s Single-Load-Cell WIM, intelligent Roadside Operation Credentialing system and number plate reader technology to identify commercial vehicles and their compliance with weight regulations.
IRD’s Tire Anomaly and Classification System will recognise vehicles which have missing, mismatched or under-inflated tires. Also, an infrared inspection system will use thermal imagery to detect the condition of brakes.
Last year, IRD provided WIM and data collection equipment to Total Innovative Security Solutions in the Philippines as part of a contract valued $1 million.
