IRD exhibits integrated weigh in motion
Randy Hanson of IRD displays ISINC
International Road Dynamics (IRD) is presenting WIM sensors, electronics, scales, traffic classifiers, and systems for commercial vehicle operations at booth 218. The company will present integrated solutions that make commercial vehicle enforcement more economical and effective, systems for data collection and solutions for toll operations. IRD develops software for automated weigh stations (WIM), traffic data collection, and automated toll collection.
IRD will feature the iSINC (intelligent Sensor Interface and Network Controller), system electronics that enable 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 IRD’s North American systems and is now being used in the US Federal Highway Administration’s Long-Term Pavement Performance (LTPP) program, data collection systems in California and New York, bridge protection systems in Delaware and Wisconsin, and a border crossing security system in Arizona.
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.
