Irdinc new sensor for tyresInternational Road Dynamics’ (IRD) new VectorSense sensor suite is an in-road sensor technology that provides previously unavailable vehicle and traffic data including lane position information, single/dual and super single tyre measurement and identification of low pressure tyres, all at highway speed.

Designed for use in commercial vehicle operations (CVO), toll road operations, and vehicle safety and traffic data collection applications, the system also enables enhanced safety checks, such as detection of under-inflated tires, for commercial vehicle screening.

The tyre position and footprint data provided by the VectorSense sensor suite opens up new possibilities for traffic data collection, commercial vehicle safety, and toll road operations.
