Transport facilitates mobility. It connects people and places, enables the exchange of goods and is an important prerequisite for our quality of life, so it is no wonder that its importance and volume are increasing worldwide. At the same time, however, the strain on roads and traffic infrastructure is becoming more intense. To prevent road damage and ensure safety, road owners and operators must sustainably manage the use of their roads diligently.
The advanced and certified Weigh In Motion (WIM) systems from Kistler collect and process traffic data without impact to traffic flow. KiTraffic and its Lineas quartz sensors reach an accuracy of up to 2.5 % GVW and feature an extremely high lifetime. The measurement technology experts’ portfolio includes comprehensive measurement systems that range from sensors to software. Reliable data on traffic volume, axle load and total weight facilitate the identification of overloaded vehicles, thus helping to reliably protect road infrastructure, increase road safety and effectively charge traffic originators. Additional services, such as Site Selection and calibration, round off the Weigh In Motion (WIM) system portfolio from Kistler.
Such sensors are used around the world to solve a wide variety of tasks, from collecting traffic data to controlling vehicle mass, as well as collecting money for using toll roads.
