The Smart Roadside vision is one in which commercial vehicles, companies, enforcement, and other transportation facilities share information seamlessly in order to improve safety, security, operational efficiency, and freight mobility. For the first phase to advance this vision FMCSA and FHWA have identified four programs and projects to be the primary focus — these are Wireless Roadside Inspections, Universal Truck Identification, Virtual Weigh Station/Electronic Screening, and Truck Parking Programs. This presentation discussed the specific objectives of the Smart Roadside Initiative, the Concept of Operations, and the project schedule, along with specific operating scenarios and user needs.
