Transport Certification Australia (TCA) Chief Executive Officer, Chris Koniditsiotis has been elected President of the International Society for Weigh-In-Motion (ISWIM).

ISWIM has over 700 individual members from 70 countries, and 16 vendors as corporate members.

The ISWIM is an international non-profit organisation, founded in 2007, and legally incorporated in Switzerland.  It is an international network of people and organisations active in the field of Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) (inclusive of on-road and on-vehicle systems).

Koniditsiotis said, “I am honoured to accept this position and to support ISWIM in its goal to advance WIM technologies, standardisation and the application and use of WIM data.

“The goals of ISWIM align closely with TCA’s established role in providing assurance in the use of telematics and related intelligent technologies, and in particular, TCA’s internationally leading work in using On-Board Mass (OBM) systems.

 

“The link between on-road and in-vehicle is an increasingly co-dependent relationship. With the technology now available, we can connect the two in new and innovative ways, all to produce better safety and productivity outcomes. Traditional WIM systems and modern OBM systems can be used together to produce the most accurate and reliable data. This in turn is creating better connections between infrastructure stakeholders and in-vehicle system developers.

“As President, I will continue to actively lead ISWIM to ensure that these diverse groups continue to take a collaborative approach to advance the use and application of WIM.”
