Utah DOT to Deploy 360SmartView Truck Screening Technology

The state of Utah will soon deploy 360SmartView throughout its network of truck inspection facilities. 360SmartView is a cloudbased truck-sorting system that will electronically assess all trucks entering weigh stations and present roadside officers with a real-time, complete and correct snapshot of compliance with state and federal safety and weight requirements.

States that have deployed 360SmartView in the past have reported as much as a 23% increase in violations detected per inspection, attributing this increase to the technology’s ability to more clearly identify deficient carriers.

This allows enforcement to focus scarce resources on those trucks and drivers more likely to have safety defects.

On I-15 just north of Salt Lake City will be the initial sites in the state to deploy 360SmartView.

    I see on the 360Smartview website, their focus seems to be on the enhanced efficiency of their system. Here in the real world, the private sector, that would mean doing more with less. I'm guessing in the government world it means doing virtually the same with more, more money, more people, more "efficient" interference with commerce.

    I wonder, in the states where this system has been deployed, if any have actually decreased levels of enforcement personnel or expenditures. I'll bet I know the answer.
