IRD Exhibiting at ITS America Annual Meeting and Exposition

Saskatoon, SK  May 29, 2015 - International Road Dynamics Inc. (IRD) will be exhibiting at the ITS America 25th Annual Meeting & Exposition from June 1-3, 2015 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. IRD, which is celebrating 35 years in business this year, will introduce ITS America attendees to VI²M™ (Vehicle Information in Motion) enforcement systems for data collection and commercial vehicle operations.

More than 2,000 of the nation’s transportation and technology leaders will gather at the three day event entitled, “Bridges to Innovation.” The conference will focus on wide array of topics, including connected and automated vehicles, security, financing and funding, sustainability, shared mobility and transit, commercial vehicle and freight logistics, mobile applications, safety, transportation systems operations, and more. IRD will be represented by Terry Bergan, President & CEO, Randy Hanson, Vice President & COO, and Ian Barrett, Manager, R&D Software.

IRD’s VI²M™ enforcement systems use the VectorSense™ tire sensor suite in ramp and mainline weigh station bypass solutions as well as for advanced data collection applications. The tire sensor suite is a new in-road sensor technology that provides vehicle position and individual tire footprint data for use in traffic data collection programs, commercial vehicle operations, and toll road operations. This additional and advanced vehicle data provides for differentiation between single standard tire width, ‘super single’ tire width, and dual tire width configurations. This system also provides information to identify tires that are overinflated or underinflated at highway speeds, presenting new opportunities in data collection, safety, and weigh station bypass system solutions.

In addition, IRD will be showcasing products, software, and fully integrated systems for automated truck weigh stations and overweight vehicle enforcement systems, advanced data collection systems, borders and ports security systems, bridge monitoring and safety, access control systems at secure facilities, and automated toll collection and audit systems. IRD’s systems bring together WIM, machine vision, automatic vehicle identification and communications technologies to be a ‘one source, multi-solution’ system integrator.
