Overheight / Overweight
Detection

Technology solutions for the protection of critical infrastructure.

High sided and overweight vehicles can have a significant impact on critical infrastructure resulting in serious potential consequences for the driver, others in the vicinity and the infrastructure in question.

We have technology solutions to help prevent incidents associated with overheight and overweight vehicles to protect both the infrastructure and the user.

BENEFITS AT A GLANCE

Our range of VMS are:

  • More easily noticed by drivers than static signs
  • Visible in all conditions, including at night
  • Flexible to your needs – displaying different speed limits /messages as required
  • Remotely controllable using our cloud-based software

OVERHEIGHT DETECTION

Coeval’s overheight vehicle warning sign systems use sensors to constantly monitor traffic flow on approaches to the infrastructure, such as a gantry or bridge.

This means it can identify an overheight vehicle in advance of it reaching the infrastructure that they are too high to pass through.

Each time a high sided vehicle approaches infrastructure that runs over the road it is travelling on, there are serious potential consequences for the driver, others in the vicinity and the infrastructure in question.

We have technology solutions to help prevent incidents associated with ‘overheight vehicles’ and protect both the infrastructure and the user.

Coeval’s vehicle warning sign systems use sensors to constantly monitor traffic flow on approaches to the infrastructure, such as a gantry or bridge. This means it can identify an overheight vehicle in advance of it reaching the infrastructure that they are too high to pass through.

When an overheight vehicle is detected an intelligent LED sign illuminates, instructing the driver to take the nominated diversion, stop or turn back.

With this simple measure, Coeval’s OVD System directly addresses the issue of drivers not knowing the height of their vehicle. As well as the clear benefits of their responsive nature, the warning signs are robust, vandal resistant and visible in all conditions – an especially crucial benefit in the winter, where driver visibility can be a challenge.

The road sign technology is fully customisable, so the message is bespoke to its location, providing specific instructions to the driver. The LED signage can be accessed locally or remotely when using our Cloud Control Solution.

These warning signs have been shown to reduce bridge strikes wherever they have been implemented.

KEY FEATURES

  • Approved to TOPAS Specification
  • 2 or 4 beam detection options
  • More easily noticed by drivers than static signs
  • Visible in all conditions, including at night
  • Flexible to your needs – displaying bespoke messaging
  • Remotely controllable signs when using our cloud-based software

OVERWEIGHT DETECTION

Each time an overweight vehicle approaches infrastructure not intended to carry such a load, there are serious potential consequences for the driver, others in the vicinity and the infrastructure in question.

A study by The RAC Foundation found that more than 3,000 bridges in the UK are not fit to support the heaviest lorries, which can weigh up to 44 tonnes.

The physical infrastructure around the bridge location plays an important part in advising, informing, and enabling HGV drivers to avoid unsuitable bridges, with more effective warning road signage and improved turning areas, for example.

Coeval has designed technology solutions to help prevent incidents associated with ‘overweight vehicles’ and protect both the infrastructure and the user.

The Overweight Vehicle Detection System (OWVD) uses sensors to constantly monitor traffic flow on approaches to the infrastructure. By combining loop and axle classification it can identify an overweight vehicle in advance and display messages on intelligent LED signage to divert non-compliant vehicles, thereby protecting the infrastructure.

With this simple measure, Coeval’s OWVD System directly addresses the issue of drivers not knowing the weight of their vehicle. As well as the clear benefits of their responsive nature, the warning signs are robust, vandal resistant and visible in all conditions – an especially crucial benefit in the winter, where driver visibility can be a challenge.

The road sign technology is fully customisable, so the message is bespoke to its location, providing specific instructions to the driver. The LED signage can be accessed locally or remotely when using our Cloud Control Solution.
