Vehicle for dynamic calibration of a multiple sensor weigh-in-motion system

A specially built vehicle was used for the dynamic calibration of Multiple Sensor Weigh-in-Motion systems and for the extensive performance test necessary for the acceptance of WIM-systems for automatic enforcement. The vehicle was built by a consortium led by Kalibra International BV with participation of TNO for the measurement technology and Nooteboom for the construction of the custom-built trailer. The vehicle consists of a three-axle tractor with a five-axle trailer of which one axle is instrumented, four axles are steerable and four axles are liftable. The costs for the WIM related measurement equipment were approximately Euro 300.000. The key specifications of the vehicle require that it should be able to measure axle loads from 5 to 15 tonnes at speeds up to 100 km/h in various axle configurations with an inaccuracy of less than 5%.
