Trucking industry stakeholders are invited to participate in a free webinar to review preliminary findings for the Wireless Roadside Inspection program.
The webinar will be held Thursday, May 19, 2-4 p.m. EDT. It will be accessible via internet and telephone.
WRI is developing a comprehensive and coordinated roadside inspection program for trucks. Motor carriers must currently navigate a maze of Federal, state and local enforcement policies that utilize a variety of manual, semi-automated and advanced technologies. WRI promises to increase operational efficiency, security and freight mobility by deploying an integrated inspection system at key locations along freight corridors. Improvements in inspection efficiency may come at a cost, however, if the predicted increase in the total number of inspections performed each year comes true.
WRI technologies have been tested with industry stakeholders over the last few years. Through these technologies, trucks are able to "talk" to roadside infrastructure and trucks that are deemed safe are allowed to bypass inspection stations. The WRI field test participants will provide key insights on how these technologies improve safety and increase productivity and what challenges still must be addressed.
