Utah Commercial Motor Vehicle Weigh-in-Motion Data Analysis and Calibration Methodology Utah Commercial Motor Vehicle Weigh-in-Motion Data Analysis and Calibration Methodology
To accomplish the research objectives, several tasks were conducted, including: 1) a review of literature to establish the state-of-the-practice for CMV monitoring, 2) collection of WIM data for the state of Utah, 3) analysis of the collected WIM data, 4) development of a calibration methodology for use in the state, and 5) presentation of recommendations and conclusions based on the research.
The analysis of collected WIM data indicated that the CMV data collection system in the state of Utah currently produces data consistent with expectations with a few exceptions. Recommendations for improvements to the CMV data collection system come in the form of a proposed calibration methodology that is in line with current standards and the practices in other states. The proposed calibration methodology includes calibration, verification, and a quality assurance programs.
