new york state e screening program
New York State E-Screening Program
  • Safety
    • More commercial vehicles screened
    • Identification of “noncompliant” operators
    • Higher probability of stopping problem carriers
  • Economics
    • Public Sector
      • Asset management
      • Improved benefit/costs of roadside inspection operations
    • Private Sector
      • Lower operation costs
      • Increased efficiency
      • Greater freight delivery reliability
  • Environmental/Energy
    • Reduction of idling emissions
    • Reduction in fuel consumption

Mainline Electronic Screening Technology

class i piezoelectric
Class I Piezoelectric
  • Sensor-type device
  • Primarily used for data collection activities
  • Reported lowest accuracy at 10%– 15%
  • Least intrusive

  • Statistical analysis developed
  • Compared three WIM measurements correlated with static measurements using LPR/Transponder
  • Measured pavement quality (smoothness) over time, weather variations, etc.
  • Best WIM may not be most accurate
  • Accuracy plus life cycle costs, installation, pavement requirements, etc., factored

Schodack, N.Y. E-Screening Installation Status 2008
  • Completed WIM installs and calibration
  • Completed LPR installation
  • All equipment tested, including weather station
  • WIM data collection started in April 2008
  • LPR data collection in May 2008
  • Performed static scale weight measurements versus dynamic WIM measurements in Fall 2008
  • Evaluated over time to correlate pavement degradation with WIM accuracy
vehicle infrastructure integration vii
Vehicle Infrastructure Integration (VII)
  • Similar to E-Z PASS technology (DSRC)
  • 915 MHz  5.9 GHz
  • Extremely high-speed, high-capacity, low-latency, highly secure data transmission
  • Universal, interoperable device/system offers multiple transportation uses
  • Internet for the highway/transportation
  • System vehicle control possible
vii enables many applications
