New “smart” onboard mass (OBM) weighing system set to take centre stage at Right Weigh’s 2023 Brisbane Truck Show display
Right Weigh will be showcasing its full range of truck telematics solutions at the upcoming Brisbane Truck Show, including its “smart” onboard mass (OBM) weighing system, which received Category-B type-approval from Transport Certification Australia (TCA) in 2022.
The smart OBM collects and transmits mass data from vehicles. It allows operators to view mass data live or historically on a tracking dashboard, and create mass trip reports for compliance.
The solution also includes an app which allows drivers to view and record real-time gross, axle, and tared weights from within the cab.
Right Weigh achieved TCA approval by collaborating with fellow Truck Show exhibitor V-DAQ, a certified provider that offers the Telematics Monitoring Application (TMA) and Road Infrastructure Management (RIM) services through the National Telematics Framework.
Together, Right Weigh and V-DAQ deliver specific aspects of the functional and technical requirements to obtain Smart OBM type-approval from TCA.
Right Weigh President and CEO Andy Mount says, “Our mission is to provide reliable and affordable load scale systems that support productivity, profitability and safety for the Australian transport industry. Right Weigh’s 201 series Smart OBM approved gauge offers the most convenient, affordable system available to fleets in Australia.”
V-DAQ Director Paul Fenech adds, “This type-approval demonstrates a combined effort between V-DAQ and Right Weigh to deliver what is possible with new and emerging technologies. The V-DAQ Right Weigh Smart OBM solution enables operators of all sizes to meet their Smart OBM requirements simply and affordably.”
Right Weigh’s other products include exterior mechanical load scales; an interior mechanical display to monitor air suspension; an exterior digital display to check a vehicle’s on-the-ground weight; and an interior digital load scale that monitors axle groups.
