Monitoring and Control of Overweight Trucks for Smart Mobility and Safety of Freight Operations

The main objectives of this project are to (1) develop the methodology to estimate the infrastructure damage cost associated with overweight vehicles on the road infrastructure in New York City (NYC) especially for pavements and bridges; (2) develop a web-based application to calculate the network-based damage cost to assess their impact; and (3) search the proof of concept of the weigh-in-motion (WIM) system for enforcement. The long-term objective of this project is to develop an integrated WIM system for screening trucks for autonomous enforcement of overweight trucks. Additionally, this research will develop a decision‐support tool for the NYC Department of Transportation (NYCDOT) to collect data to foster future maintenance and preservation operations.
