2006 DyGeS - Dynamisches Gewichtserfassungs-System
Nomination for Austrian Award for Telematics
The objective of the research activity is the registration of vehicle speed and weight in real time based on of the measurement of the dynamic characteristic of bridges. The loads are not registered by means of special weighing devices in the conventional sense but indirectly determined from the dynamic respoxnse of the structure. For the application of this method no construction measures are necessary, the traffic flow is not affected at any time. Bridges are particularly suited for the registration of traffic flows because they represent bottlenecks, for example the Danube bridges or viaducts (Europabrücke).
