Bridge Weigh-in-Motion (B-WIM) System Testing and Evaluation,  University Transportation Center for Alabama

In recent years advanced weigh-in-motion systems applied to bridges (B-WIM) have shown enormous potential in detecting oversized and overweight commercial trucks in Europe. This project has three primary objectives: 

  1. Identify the potential benefits of using B-WIM technology in Alabama
  2. Perform a pilot B-WIM system field test program in Alabama to evaluate the potential for deployment and
  3. Use the results of the technical research and field testing as both an educational tool and a foundation for further discussion on a national level.
