Weigh-in-Motion stations record axle weights as vehicles drive over the stations at normal traffic speeds. The information gathered from these stations is used for pavement design, monitoring and research.
At Traffic and Load Control Centres, WIM stations are used to screen Heavy vehicles for weighing at weighbridges. As part of a Comprehensive Traffic Observation (CTO) system, WIM stations assist monitoring, design and planning of road networks and infrastructure.
With the development of our own in-house electronic logger equipment to process bending plate signals, TES is able to provide clients with competitively priced Weigh-In-Motion survey stations.
TES has successfully deployed the following:
BKS was the independent quality engineer on the BPCC WIM Project and TES has been fortunate to participate in the world leading statistical analysis research and development into WIM data quality control as was continuously being advanced by the late Dr Martin Slavik, BKS Associate, and Gerhard de Wet, Chief Transport Engineer.
TES has recently accredited our Traffic Monitoring Systems according to the TMH 3 and 14 Specifications as set out by the South African Committee of Transport Officials (COTO). Agrément SA along with the CSIR have been used to facilitate the accreditation process and verifying of results, ensuring that our equipment complies with all requirements. TES conducts the complete installation and maintenance of WIM stations and have been doing so for more than 20 Years, starting on the WIM projects for the N3TC and BPCC. Data analysis and reports are world leading and can accommodate most of our clients’ needs with regards to classification and report formats.
As TES is skilled and experienced in integrating systems, we are currently in the process of integrating various equipment such as cameras, optical character recognition, radio tagging of vehicles and remote connectors to deliver a complete Remote WIM site as well as stock and loading control at mines and resource industries, where TES will also be able to provide the software management systems for such projects.
