IEM Advances Phase II Development of Technology to Prevent Highway Bridge Accidents ,   
Monday, May 08, 2017

Under a Phase II Small Business Innovation Research Program Contract, the Federal Highway Administration will support IEM's ongoing development of a highway-based technology to accurately detect when a travelling vehicle is too late to pass under an overpass or through a tunnel.  

This Intelligent Dimension Evaluation and Alert System will detect oversize vehicles and provide an alert to prevent that vehicle from continuing.  IEM's work will focus on technology for accurate vehicle measurement at highway speed with an alerting system to be integrated with emerging infrastructure-to-vehicle communications being developed under Federally funded Connected Vehicle Programs.
