overview
Overview
  • Introduction and description of the Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) System
  • Discuss project goals
  • Describe hardware and software involved in project
  • Explain all methods of data collection
  • Provide results
  • Who will benefit
  • Discuss possible future plans
weigh in motion what it is
Weigh-In-Motion: What It Is
  • Department of Defense (DOD) requirement to project massive combat power in minimum preparation time
  • Portable weighing system that accurately weigh vehicles
  • “Enabler” to DOD power projections requirement
    • Determines axle weights and axle spacing for vehicles
    • Determines total vehicle/cargo weight
    • Determines longitudinal and latitudinal center of gravity
weigh in motion how it works
Weigh-In-Motion: How it works
  • WIM Movie
  • Assembly (1:38-2:15)
  • Different types of military vehicles (2:27-3:02)
project goals for summer term 2005
Project Goals for Summer Term 2005
  • Create reference tool that is easy to follow and understand for all potential users
  • Design efficient and effective learning manual
  • Facilitate descriptive ‘how to’ information in a concise format
  • Facilitate learning through visualization technology
hardware for training tool set
Hardware for Training Tool Set

-Directly wired to weighing pads and receives data calculated from pads -Performs its calculations and transmits weigh information to WIM client

WIM Host

Laptop

Laptop used in connection with Symbol 8146 or commercial PDA coupled to WIM host to capture screens

-Handheld pocket PC with embedded wireless and image scanning engine -Allows wireless (802.11b) connection to WIM System

Symbol 8146

software for training tool set
Software for Training Tool Set

Synchronizes PocketPC and desktop applications to setup components of WIM system initially

Allows individual screens and video from handheld PDA to be captured

ORNL written client program that controls physical WIM device

Data Collecting of Current WIM System

  • Dynamic Weighing Method
  • Drive vehicle over weighing pads 3 to 10 mph
  • WIM system calculates for each axle and total weight
  • All information is processed, collected and transmitted
  • Stop and Go Weighing Method
  • Drive vehicle over weighing pads, stopping and collecting weight on each axle
  • WIM system calculates for each axle and total weight
  • All information is processed, collected and transmitted
  • Static Weighing Method
  • Drive vehicle over weighing pads and stop until weight is idle
  • All information is processed, collected and transmitted
results
Results
  • First consolidated draft of Weigh-In-Motion, Cube Measurement and Marking User Manual for WIM Integrated System
  • Hardcopy version explains process step-by-step
  • Format accommodates expansion for:
    • Cube measurement
    • Marking
  • Video data collected to be incorporated for on-line version
who will benefit
Who Will Benefit
  • Military personnel involved with WIM
    • Enables weighing process to be safer and faster; less stressful
    • Enhances training via hardcopy and electronic video version
    • Accommodates distance learning
  • Expansion to primarily non-military activities:
    • Department of Homeland Security
      • Portable weigh station
      • Customs/ border control
      • Virtual weigh station
    • Perimeter protection
      • Embassy surveillance
future plans
Future plans
  • Expand WIM System to integrate Cube Measurement and Marking solutions—Oct. ‘05
  • Deploy 20 limited production WIM systems to military units—Nov. ‘05
  • Conduct “lessons learned/assessment” phase of project—Nov. ’05 to Fall ‘06
  • Update WIM system and all user manuals as needed
