(TECH) New Israeli Technology Weighs Trucks Without Stopping

"Technion and Innowattech Energy Harvesting Systems develop way to detect overloaded trucks quickly and efficiently.

Truck drivers beware. A new technology developed by the Israel National Roads Company (INRC), together with researchers from the Technion and Innowattech Energy Harvesting Systems, enables vehicles to be weighed while in motion, meaning that overloaded trucks can be detected and prosecuted quickly and efficiently.

The new weighing system, a self-powered system which is embedded in the road, completed its final round of testing this week on Road 75, near Haifa."
