Tire Safety Screening - TACS™

The Tire Anomaly and Classification System (TACS™) screens commercial vehicles at weigh station facilities to identify those vehicles which are unsafe due to missing or underinflated tires.

Tire anomalies and flat tires decrease directional control, increase the risk of commercial vehicle accidents, reduce tire life, and negatively affect fuel economy. Mismatched and missing tires result in vehicle imbalance, improper load distribution and potential safety issues.

The Tire Anomaly and Classification System (TACS) supports the screening of commercial vehicles at highway (up to 100 mph) and ramp speeds at weigh station facilities to identify those vehicles which are unsafe due to missing or underinflated tires. TACS™ consists of the following components:

  • In-Road Sensors – for tire detection and measurement
  • Roadside Electronics – to capture information from the in-road sensors and pass this information to the weigh station for use by weigh station operations
  • Weigh Station Work Station, Software and Graphical User Interface (GUI) – to present information to weigh station operators and support their setting of commercial vehicle screening criteria based on data provided by TACS

TACS is capable of integration to weigh station screening systems including: Weigh-in-Motion, Electronic Screening (ie: License Plate Readers, transponders, USDOT Readers, HazMat Readers, etc.), vehicle dimensioning systems, vehicle tracking systems, etc.
