Saskatoon, SK Sept. 12, 2014 - International Road Dynamics Inc. (IRD) will exhibit at the IBTTA 2014 Annual Meeting and Exhibition, September 14-17 in Austin, Texas. IRD will be showing ITS solutions for toll operations and bridge monitoring and safety.
IRD will be introducing the VectorSense™ sensor suite for toll operations at this year's IBTTA exhibition. "For the first time we will be producing a sensor system capable of distinguishing tire type using the tire footprint," said Terry Bergan, IRD's President and CEO. "This will enable identification of all vehicle classes, including motorcycles, three-wheelers and bicycles. Our goal in developing the VectorSense™ sensor suite is to provide a product that will accurately classify vehicles for toll operators to assign variable toll rates. The VectorSense™ tire sensor suite functions at all speeds, enabling use in open road tolling (ORT), and it will also have the ability to provide accurate measurements in stop-and-go traffic. We expect the VectorSense™ tire sensor suite to be a valued complementary technology to IRD's weigh-in-motion systems for bridge protection and WIM@Toll® truck tolling systems." Select toll concessionaires will be able to evaluate VectorSense™ sensors in their toll systems in 2015.
