Weigh in Motion (WIM)
The system Weigh in Motion (WIM) truck will be weighed as they pass. The police can then focus all the overloaded trucks off the road to get a precise weighing.
How does it work?
At the WIM there are plate recognition cameras hanging above each lane of a porch or a bridge. They automatically record the license plate of each vehicle. Loops in the pavement will detect the vehicles measures the length of vehicles. Weighing Sensors in the pavement detect the axles and register the axle loads. Cameras on either side of the road to an overview image of the situation. People of the traffic police and road inspection are located further up the road, they can consult the data that the WIM system is sending them. So they get a list of all possible overloaded trucks coming towards their direction. They can get them off the road and into a scale and measure the exact (over) weight.
Where can you find them?
Currently there are two locations equipped with a WIM installation: the E40 direction Gent at the height of Erpe-Mere and the N16 direction Puurs near the Schelde bridge.
