RSF 110, Replacement of Roadside Screening Equipment - HP ITD 2020

Grants and Contracts Details


KATS systems utilize license plate reader (LPR) and USDOT/KYU number reader technology and an overview image camera to capture and process images of commercial vehicles for screening and observation purposes. This information is screened against Kentucky’s Commercial Vehicle Information Exchange Window (CVIEW) to identify vehicles for inspection at weigh stations and roadside. These systems will screen vehicles on such things as: PRISM target file, Federal Out-of-Service (FOOS) status, expired registration, insurance violations, vehicle and driver out-of-service rates, UCR violations, IFTA suspensions or revoked licenses, and Kentucky-specific credentials (KYU, KIT, etc.). Thermal imaging cameras have been installed at the Kenton, Laurel, Lyon, and Simpson County facilities. These systems include a thermal image camera to evaluate the brakes and tire condition of vehicles on the ramp. Parking monitoring cameras have been installed at the following weigh stations: Laurel NB, Laurel SB, Scott, Kenton, Boone, Simpson, Lyon EB, Lyon WB, Shelby, Fulton, Henderson, Rowan and Hardin. They are utilized to ensure that the trucks directed to stop actually pull into the facility and meet with enforcement personnel. These cameras also give enforcement the ability to see if drivers are wearing their seatbelts or talking on cellular phones in some instances. The cameras also provide safety to the enforcement personnel by allowing them to see into the cab of the trucks after they are parked to ensure they are not bringing weapons into the facility. The purpose of this project is to replace a portion of Kentucky’s ageing roadside screening systems and associated hardware and software. These systems utilize some or all of the following technologies:
