Weigh Station Architecture - Brazil Automated Integrated Enforcement Station Posto Integrado Automatizado de Fiscalização-PIAF Valter Zanela Tani Projects Coordinator Gustavo G. Otto WIM Project Coordinator History Weight Enforcement in Brazil • Brazil applies low speed weigh-in-motion for enforcement since 70’s – using bending plate technologie; • There are 77 weight stations spread by the national road network; • The weight station uses a 60 km/h pre selection scale and a 10 km/h enforcement scale (with metrologic approval); • Today is in process the PNCT - National Plan of Traffic Count and PNP – National Plan of Weighing; Brazilian Overloading Prevention Program • The Overloading Prevention Program will performe diferentes actions for reduce overloading practices: – Company Profiling System; – Certification Program with road authorities; – Intelligent Access Program; Weigh Station Architecture Automated Integrated Enforcement Station This architecture aims at promoting compliance of traffic and transportation regulations comprehensively, including all activities of a Brazilian traditional weigh station with the necessary adaptations and improvements. Weigh Station Architecture Automated Integrated Enforcement Station • General aspects of Brazilian legislations: – 154 types of trucks plus; – Different size of vehicles with same number of axles; – WIM error class for Enforcement (under discussion by metrology department): • GVW – 0,5%; • Axle and grup of axle – 1%; – Tolerance (under discussion by MT): • Per Axle – 7,5%; • GVW – 5%; Enforcement Architecture Penalty Management Planning AET PNCT OCC PIAF Infra • Operating parameters EPL RFB ANTT PRF • Support databases • Operating parameters • Support databases • Audio/Video comm.
