Weigh station bypassing there's an app for that | Overdrive …

At the Great American Trucking Show, Drivewyze, a subsidiary of roadside inspection equipment manufacturer Intelligent Imaging Systems, announced the Aug.

28 availability of their new PreClear product, a web-based weigh station bypass system that operates via an app on operators Android, iPhone or Blackberry smartphones. Requiring no installation of in-cab hardware, said Project Manager Brian Mofford, the PreClear system has in under a year s time rolled out to well more than 100 sites in 12 states: Connecticut, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia. The company expects to be operational in 24 states and 4 Canadian provinces by this time next year.

PreClear differs from current transponder-based system in other ways, including that it gives roadside personnel visibility of the truck driver s identity and CDL-associated driving record. Mofford and company see this as a plus for safe drivers. Combined with the technology s ability to be deployed at non-weigh station inspection sites.

Law enforcement can set up a geofence in any area and utilize it to target only those with negative safety records, prioritizing their work and saving bypassed drivers time and money. Otherwise they d get a 100 percent pull-in at those secondary sites, said former North Carolina State Patrol Officer Marc Nichols, current Drivewyze sales director. It s a very powerful tool for law enforcement.

User data is stored on company servers, and when law enforcement requests data to determine whether to bypass or pull in a truck, the system creates a unique identifier that is sent through secure sockets to the officer s web portal, then translated to readable data. Though the company s service is launching with the smartphone as the driver s tool, Mofford said, really all it requires is a web connection we re looking at other in-cab equipment such as GPS units and/or fleet communications devices for future potential. Drivewyze is offering a free test drive of the service for the next two months (through November 1) to all GATS attendees in 12 states where the system is operational: Connecticut, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.

The test will be functional at all Drivewyze service sites, weigh stations and temporary pop-ups.
