'WIM-HAND', THE DEVELOPMENT OF A WEIGH-IN-MOTION SYSTEM FOR AUTOMATIC ENFORCEMENT OF OVERLOADING

National and international goods transportation by road is an important part of the Dutch economy; 173,000 trucks transport 600 million tons annually. Truck traffic in particular is damaging the infrastructure. The number and the loads of (axles of) trucks are the major determinant for the degree of maintenance. A disproportionately large percentage of the damage to the infrastructure is caused by trucks with axle loads higher than the legal maximums. In addition, overloading of one or more axles of a truck or the whole vehicle is likely to have a negative effect on traffic safety. The objective of the 'WIM-Hand' project, discussed in this paper, is to develop a High-Speed Multiple-Sensor Weigh-In-Motion-system that in the future can be used for automatic enforcement of overloading.
