How are state departments of transportation incorporating weigh-in-motion (WIM) data into their highway projects? TRB will host a webinar on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 from 12:00-1:30 PM Eastern that will discuss WIM data use in the United States and in Europe. Presenters will focus on the benefits of using WIM data for bridge and pavement design and management, load ratings, weight enforcement support, and freight planning logistics. They will discuss sensor types used and the benefits of each one.
This webinar was organized by the TRB Standing Committee on Highway Traffic Monitoring and the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP).
