Abstract
A Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) system is being developed that will deploy in or on roadways of all types and accurately measure and report weights of crossing vehicles, including total vehicle weight and individual axle and wheel weights. The innovation in the system is that it senses horizontal (lateral and longitudinal) forces at each wheel and uses those measurements to correct for vehicle weight shift associated with steering, braking or accelerating. The resultant weights are static-equivalent wheel weights.
