Overview

This novel system allows for digital monitoring of payloads on heavy vehicles and avoids repetitive, physical weighing of the vehicle to check overloading status. This is achieved by digitally linking all weighbridges and cameras on a specific corridor. Once weighed and photographed, the system digitally recognizes any changes, while the vehicle is in transit.

Technology Benefits:

  • Cost-effective;
  • Digital, centrally monitored law enforcement;
  • Easy to integrate into existing systems; and 
  • Advances prolonged pavement surfaces

Market opportunity: 

Ideal for management of toll roads and logistics corridors, especially in developing countries
