Perceptics has launched its new number reader system designed to automate the collection of DOT numbers, improving the rate and amount of inspections at weigh stations in the US.

The new DOT system is integrated with the License Plate Reader system which can read license plates 95% more accurately even in lane change situations, the company said.

Currently, the officials managing weigh stations manually enter commercial vehicle DOT and motor carrier data into software designed to search state and federal databases for inspection infractions or expired licenses.

The automatic licence will help in relieving traffic congestion as it will help enforcement agencies concentrate on enforcement opportunities while keeping traffic moving.
