The Commercial Vehicle Information Systems and Networks (CVISN) is a Federal program to improve commercial vehicle operations (CVO) safety and efficiency through the use of advanced technologies and the increased sharing of information. Participation is voluntary. However, because of its perceived value, Wyoming will meet and exceed the Federal CVISN requirements. Through the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) Research Advisory Committee (RAC) funding, several research elements of the Wyoming CVISN Program were conducted. This research led to the subsequent deployment of successful CVISN elements that are now in use, and that are helping to improve the safety and efficiency of trucking in the State. The Wyoming CVISN Program Plan describes how specific advanced technologies will be used to achieve the following goals: to give CVO inspectors better and more accurate information for conducting inspections; to employ CVISN functions that meet the State's needs and financial restrictions; to reduce the paper, time, and travel needed to fulfill the regulatory obligations for the State and motor carrier industry; to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of credential information exchange; and to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the roadside screening process. This document represents the recommendations of the Program Team for achieving CVISN compliance in Wyoming.
