IRD Awarded Fifth Electronic Screening and Enforcement System in Oklahoma
SASKATOON, SK, Aug. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - International Road Dynamics Inc. ("IRD" or the "Company"), a Quarterhill Inc. ("Quarterhill") company (TSX: QTRH) (OTCQX: QTRH), announced today that the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has authorized IRD to move forward with the installation of an Electronic Screening System (ESS) for the Bryan County Northbound Port-of-Entry Weigh Station. The financial terms of the contract are confidential.
The ESS will include IRD's turnkey Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) system and its Tire Anomaly and Classification System (TACS) fully integrated with the Port-of-Entry weigh station's static scale, variable message signs and CCTV systems. The project is expected to commence in the second quarter of 2022, and once implemented, IRD will maintain the system for a five-year period.
IRD's turnkey WIM Systems use Automated License Plate Readers (ALPR), Automated USDOT Number Readers (UNR), and Vehicle Overview Cameras to detect and screen commercial vehicles, in real-time, for size, weight, and safety. IRD's ESS uses an Intelligent Roadside Operations Computer (iROC) for Electronic Screening and interfaces with Oklahoma's State Commercial Vehicle Information Exchange Window (CVIEW) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER). This inter-connectivity provides better data collection to identify enforcement violations, focus on safety initiatives, improve road design, and protect Oklahoma's single largest asset, its highway infrastructure.
"This project builds on the previous deployments of four Port-of-Entry Electronic Screening Systems in Oklahoma and we are pleased to expand our relationship with ODOT. Oklahoma's commercial vehicle operations managers and inspectors will benefit from advanced automated weigh station systems that include the latest e-screening technology," said Rish Malotra, IRD's President and CEO. "IRD's systems enable the collection of real-time, actionable traffic data which can be used to enforce overweight vehicles, enhance overall road safety, and plan for the state's freight transportation future. The broad scope of IRD's services in Oklahoma underline the value agencies see in IRD's systems and their willingness to commit to long-term service agreements."
