RFID Weigh Bridge Automation

Automated Weigh Bridge System RFID

An automated weigh bridge monitoring solution which records and extracts weight data associated with vehicles as they drive through the weigh bridge. 


When a truck arrives at the weigh bridge its unique RFID tag is recorded by our LIR-100 reader. Our software component extracts the weight data from the Trek Scale database, links it to the vehicle tag ID and sends it to our servers using the GPRS modem of the Techsolutions LIR-100.


Techsolutions is the leading supplier of RFID vehicle identification systems. The first system was supplied in 2007 to SANRAL for use at the the Bapong Overload Control Centre on the N4 highway, just outside Rustenburg. Since then, a number of systems have been supplied to clients in South Africa and in the SADC region.

Features and Benefits:

  • Automatic identification of vehicles and trailers on the weigh bridge using RFID. This eliminates errors and speeds up the process. RFID accuracy is much higher than ANPR.

  • Registering vehicles on the system by scanning the license disks of vehicles using a handheld scanner. This speeds up the process and eliminating errors

  • Linking additional data to the weigh record such as Delivery Note Number, Driver Details, and seal numbers using a handheld scanner. This substantially improves security when goods are released

  • Barcode/RFID scanning of driver license, part numbers, pallet/crate numbers. By electronically scanning these items, they are tracked and linked to the transaction record.
