Abstract
During Phase I, IEM developed a concept design for a Slow Speed Weigh In Motion Error Reduction System (SWIMERS). SWIMERS offers an innovative approach to weigh in motion technology that employs advanced error reduction algorithms to remove dynamic effects of vehicle suspension as well as load effects from vehicle steering, braking, acceleration, and other external factors. These algorithms are integrated with an innovative sensor technology that generates data reflecting the above dynamic and load effects. During Phase II, IEM will advance these initial efforts and will build prototype systems to support both a fixed, in-ground WIM application as well as an easily portable version that can be used for expedient applications. Data from this WIM system will support the data requirements for hidden payload detection developed by the US Army.
