KiTraffic Digital, the unique Weigh In Motion solution

KiTraffic Digital

Weigh In Motion solution

KiTraffic Digital is far more than just another Weigh In Motion (WIM) system: Kistler is now proud to present the world’s most advanced digital WIM platform. With outstanding accuracy levels and a range of smart features, KiTraffic Digital harnesses the power of digitalization to revolutionize the future of road safety.

Traffic loads – and overloaded vehicles in particular – significantly impact the condition of roads and bridges. The solution? KiTraffic Digital from Kistler, powered by cutting-edge sensors and precision engineering to deliver accurate real-time weight measurements of vehicles moving at any speed. This system leverages digital technology to identify overloaded trucks – the key to highly effective protection of pavement infrastructure.

KiTraffic accurate
Take advantage of the world’s highest accuracy
  • World’s most accurate WIM system delivers weighing precision of up to ± 2% for gross vehicle weight (in ideal road conditions), from walking pace to racing speeds
  • OIML R134 certification for accuracy class F5 from the Swiss Federal Institute of Metrology (METAS) provides independent proof of performance – making national type approvals easier
  • Best detection rate ensures automatic penalization of the maximum number of overloaded vehicles via direct weight enforcement
OIML certificate
Lineas digital sensor exploited
Benefit from innovative Lineas Digital sensors
  • The core elements of the new platform are Lineas Digital WIM sensors – the world’s first fully digitized quartz piezoelectric sensors
  • With over 60 embedded sensing elements, Lineas Digital generates more data than any other WIM sensor on the market
  • Lineas Digital is backed by Kistler’s proven track record of over 25 years in quartz piezoelectric sensor technology
  • Modular design covers all lane widths and fits all types of pavement
Fast, minimally invasive installation
  • Sensors are fully embedded in the pavement with no screws or frames
  • No heavy machinery is needed – only one small slot is required in the pavement
  • Layout options are flexibly scaled and matched to accuracy requirements
  • Power over Ethernet (PoE) ensures efficient sensor power supply and signal transmission
Reliable data acquisition and processing system
  • Reliable hardware (PoE switch, industrial PC and router) meets the highest industrial quality standards
  • Electronic devices are part of a certified measuring chain, and are configured to achieve maximum performance
  • Components are available separately, in DIN-rail configuration or in a fully prewired back panel for easy on-site installation
Versatile customer interfaces
  • Advanced user-friendly, web-based GUI provides access to all available data records
  • Standard interfaces allow simple access to data in machine-readable formats
  • Easy integration into any higher-level systems or customer networks is guaranteed via:
    • Pull communication: secured REST API
    • Push communication: Ethernet data stream via webhooks

Gain access to cutting-edge digital features

Road safety can be improved by detecting single, dual, flat, mismatched, and missing tires.
Automated tire screening
  • Delivers tire type information (dual/single) and detects underinflated or flat tires
  • Enables tire screening with no need for additional software or tilted sensors

Interlane driving
  • Delivers correct weight measurements and reliable data – even when vehicles switch lanes at high speeds

Smart road calibration
  • Each quartz crystal within a Lineas Digital WIM sensor can be calibrated separately. This compensates for the influence of varying road properties across the lane, so highly accurate results are guaranteed in all driving positions
KiTraffic system status monitoring
System status monitoring
  • Continuous health status monitoring assures users that the system is consistently operational
  • Early detection of potential issues minimizes disruptions to operation

A solution that’s also ideal for many applications beyond WIM
