2.3.4: Detect and Classify Commercial Vehicles and Freight Equipment
This process shall be responsible for detecting the presence of commercial vehicles and freight equipment with sensors that can differentiate between the different types of vehicle. The process shall use the sensors to determine the number of axles, gross vehicle weight, weight per axle and presence of security sensitive hazardous material for use by inspectors at the roadside check station facilities. When a commercial vehicle is detected, the process shall transmit a request for its on-board tag data, which when received shall be passed to other processes within the roadside facility. If no tag data is received, or the data cannot be interpreted correctly, the process shall send a request for the vehicle to pull-in to be output by another process in the roadside check station facility. When a freight breach or commercial vehicle security alarm is received, the process shall send a request for the vehicle carrying the freight to pull-in to be output by another process in the commercial vehicle roadside facility. The detained vehicle can be interrogated for additional information regarding the specific nature of the freight breach or security alarm. If a vehicle fails to pull-in and attempts to bypass the check facility, this process shall generate a notification to be sent to the CVO Inspector that a vehicle has violated a pull-in message.
