An IRD toll system in India
Canada-headquartered International Road Dynamics (IRD) will be attending the ITS World Congress to present integrated ITS solutions that make highways more efficient. The company will showcase products, software, and fully integrated systems for automated truck weigh stations using high-speed and low speed weigh-in-motion (WIM), automated toll collection and audit systems, advanced traffic data collection, security and access control, and fleet management using GPS. As IRD points out, it brings together WIM, machine vision, automatic vehicle identification, and communications technologies to be a ‘one source, multi-solution’ integrator, and claims to be the world’s largest supplier of integrated WIM systems.
A key component of many IRD systems is the iSINC (Intelligent Sensor Interface and Network Controller), rugged roadside electronics developed by IRD for integrated ITS applications such as virtual weigh stations, automated truck weigh stations, WIM@Toll, border security, credential screening, electronic toll collection (ETC) and highway traffic management systems (HTMS). The iSINC is the perfect controller for IRD’s high-accuracy WIM scales and sensors, and its modular design provides compatibility with a wide range of complementary sensors, vehicle ID, cameras, networks and message signs.
