Swiss heavy good vehicle control centers: a closer look at facility characteristics and supporting technologies: international technology scanning program

Switzerland has incorporated the use of technology as part of an efficient and effective approach to simultaneously measuring commercial motor vehicle size and weight at off-route stationary enforcement locations (i.e., heavy goods vehicle (HGV) control centers). Potentially oversize or overweight vehicles—based on technology-based preselection procedures using weigh-in-motion (WIM) and/or overheight detection systems or enforcement personnel assessment—are directed into the facility for additional measurements. This document provides detailed information on facility characteristics and supporting technologies.
