International Road Dynamics (IRD), a global supplier of weigh-in-motion (WIM) systems will be presenting WIM controllers, WIM scales, portable scales, traffic classifiers, and WIM system applications on its stand at Intertraffic.
The company will also be focusing in particular on its iSINC (intelligent Sensor Interface and Network Controller) that enables WIM integration with camera systems, databases, signs, AVI and non-intrusive sensors – making it suitable for use in numerous ITS applications.
“The iSINC has been a popular upgrade to older electronics in our North American systems and is now being used in the US Federal Highway Administration’s Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) programME, data collection systems in California and New York, bridge protection systems in Delaware and Wisconsin, and a major border crossing security system in Arizona,” says Terry Bergan, IRD President and CEO.
“The iSINC has also been popular internationally too, in toll systems in India and Mongolia, weight enforcement systems in the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, weigh stations in Peru, and in many other ITS systems around the world. Clearly there is a widespread need for this technology in the ITS industry.”
The iSINC is used in IRD’s virtual and remote control weigh stations, data collection systems, port/border security systems, mining operations and automated toll road systems (WIM@Toll). For data collection applications the iSINC can be configured to provide volume, occupancy and speed (VOS) data in real-time. The iSINC’s modularity enables system upgrades as customer’s traffic management strategies change. For instance, the VWS module provides a web browser user interface to the iSINC, making it easy to access WIM data over the internet.
