ITS-NY has announced the 2009 Project-of-the-Year Winners at its Sixteenth Annual Meeting in Saratoga Springs, NY. The winning projects highlight the use of ITS technologies to improve the mobility and safety of NYS travelers, enhance the efficiency of NYS transportation network and modes including public transportation, and provide positive environmental and energy benefits to NYS. These outstanding projects also have a high degree of multiagency coordination and collaboration.
COMMERCIAL VEHICLE OPERATIONS – The Comparative Assessment of Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Technology Study performed by Project Team Members NYSDOT, the I-95 Corridor Coalition, the FHWA, the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, and Clough Harbour & Associates assessed various WIM technologies, an important integrated component of roadside commercial vehicle electronic screening (e-screening) based systems. Since most commercial vehicle electronic screening safety operations involve numerous statewide e-screening sites with many roadside devices costing significant monies, this study assessed WIM technologies based on real world, field based evaluation.
