DEVELOPMENT OF A TRUCK CLASSIFICATION COUNTER

A SPECIALIZED TRAFFIC COUNTER THAT WILL FACILITATE THE CLASSIFICATION OF HIGHWAY TRAFFIC BY COUNTING THE NUMBER OF AXLES ON A VEHICLE WAS DEVELOPED. THIS IS ACCOMPLISHED BY SENSING THE PRESENCE OF A VEHICLE BY MEANS OF A LOOP DETECTION SYSTEM AND OBTAINING AN AXLE COUNT BY THE USE OF A PNEUMATIC TUBE LOCATED WITHIN THE LOOP AREA. THE SCHEMATICS, DRAWINGS AND PHOTOGRAPHS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT ARE ADEQUATE FOR DUPLICATION OF THE EQUIPMENT.
