Weigh-in-motion (WIM) measurement chains form the basis for KiTraffic Plus. They consist of piezoelectric quartz sensors, which are embedded in the road, measurement peripherals and corresponding software. If required, Kistler can also equip the system with supplementary measurement technology from third-party suppliers, such as cameras for automatic licence plate recognition, measurement technology that records vehicle dimensions, or systems for speed control.
KiTraffic Plus features a versatile software package that provides access to live data for pre-selection during traffic controls. It also records the status of the vehicle including all measured parameters, overview image and indications of violations. Kistler says initial reactions from Switzerland show that the new system meets an urgent demand: KiTraffic Plus has already been introduced at several locations for the pre-selection of overloaded vehicles.
