Using WIM systems

Use of WIM systems, includes the collection, storage, quality monitoring and application of the WIM data.
Due to the nature of WIM-systems and the ‘hostile’ environment in which they have to operate, damage, wear and tear on the system’s hardware and the surrounding pavement are part of normal operation. This means that the performance of all WIM systems will reduce over time, normally slowly because of wear and tear but sometimes quickly in case of damage to – parts of – the system. During the operation of a WIM system, different processes are required to ensure the WIM system is working correctly and data quality checks will ensure the minimum quality of the data generated by the system is of the required standard.
