This article presents a brief overview of weighing systems and devices designed to facilitate fluent and safe road traffic. The number of vehicles on roads is perpetually on the rise, resulting in increased wear of road surfaces. This is why weight check gates have widely been implemented to check the speed and weight of a vehicle against what is permitted by law. A cheaper, albeit more time-consuming, traffic weighing alternative would involve weighing points using weighbridges or mobile axle scales. The second part of this article examines the development of an axle scale. The design and calculation works were performed with the use of the Creo Parametric CAD system and the ANSYS Workbench FEM system.
