Traffic Data Systems GmbH (TDS)
OverviewTraffic Data Systems is one of the world's most innovative developers and manufacturers of high-end traffic monitoring systems. The company is based in Hamburg, Germany and is a technology and market leader in the fields of dynamic axle-load scales (WIM, Weigh-In-Motion), vehicle and bicycle classification systems as well as systems for processing environmental data (RWIS).
ProductsThe main focus in the dynamic weighing (Weigh in Motion) of vehicles is on the safety of road users, compliance with legal regulations and also the protection and long-term maintenance of the traffic infrastructure. Individual items of vehicle data are recorded using axle load sensors and inductive loops installed in the road surface. These items of data include wheel weights, axle weights and overall weights. TDS´s WIM-DSP 32 is currently in the certification process for Weigh-In-Motion Enforcement (WIM-E) applicataion. The systems certification is based on the OIML R134 standard and for a speed range from 5km/h - 110 km/h for heavy vehicles and 5km/h - 160km/h for Light Goods Vehicles (LGV).
