With 35 years of experience, IRD is a multi-discipline company specializing in advanced traffic control, weight enforcement, bridge protection, access security and toll management technologies.
For 35 years, IRD’s weigh station bypass technologies have been an important factor in improving transportation efficiency while maintaining truck safety. By keeping vehicles moving smoothly, efficiently and safely, IRD’s Intelligent Transportation Systems have resulted in significant pollution reduction and fuel savings on a global basis.
IRD’s Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) technology is effective in preventing damage to roads and bridges. IRD’s Virtual Weigh Stations (VWS) can be used for monitoring and enforcement of overweight vehicles even in urban areas where traditional weigh stations are impractical. IRD’s WIM systems are also integrated with toll systems so that toll rates based on weight or classification can be easily administered to recoup costs from damage by heavy vehicles.
