SASKATOON, SK, Nov. 25, 2020 /PRNewswire/ - International Road Dynamics Inc. ("IRD"), a Quarterhill Inc. ("Quarterhill") company (TSX: QTRH) (OTCQX: QTRH), announced today that the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) has authorized IRD to move forward with the installation of a VWS System. The financial terms of the contract are confidential. The VWS System includes two lanes that will be instrumented with IRD's turnkey Weigh-In-Motion (WIM) Systems. The project is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2021, and once implemented, IRD will maintain the system for a five-year period. Mr. Rish Malhotra, IRD's President and CEO commented: "Our VWS System is a leader in generating transportation intelligence. It enables the collection of real-time traffic data which can be used for the enforcement of overweight vehicles and to enhance overall road safety. This project builds on the previous deployments of four Port-of-Entry Electronic Screening Systems in Oklahoma and we are pleased to expand our relationship with the ODOT." IRD's turnkey WIM Systems are integrated with Automated License Plate Readers, Automated USDOT Number Readers , and Vehicle Overview Cameras. These systems will be used to detect and screen commercial vehicles, in real-time, for size, weight, and safety. IRD's System uses an Intelligent Roadside Operations Computer (iROC) for Electronic Screening and interfaces with Oklahoma's State Commercial Vehicle Information Exchange Window (CVIEW) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) Safety and Fitness Electronic Records (SAFER). This inter-connectivity provides better data collection to identify potential violators, focus on safety initiatives, improve road design and protection of Oklahoma's single largest asset, its highway infrastructure.
