Development of a Weigh-Pad-Based Portable Weigh-In- Motion System

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  12/11/2012


Researchers developed a low-cost, portable and reusable weigh-in-motion system that can be used on rural local roads; evaluated the effects of pavement temperature and vehicle speed on its vehicle weight measurements; and compared these measurements to standard in-pavement systems. Results showed that it is possible to build and deploy a durable system with data quality similar to that of standard systems.
