SASKATOON, Sask. — International Road Dynamics (IRD) will be supplying three new truck rollover warning systems to the state of Georgia.
The contract, valued at $620,000, is an extension of a last year’s deal that saw three similar systems installed in the state.
The rollover system detects a truck’s speed, deceleration, height and weight as it exits a freeway, and flashes a warning sign to a driver who is in danger of flipping the rig.
The system will be installed in problem curves that have a history of spilling trucks. The locations are on I-20 and I-285 in Fulton County.
“We are extremely proud to be partnering with the State of Georgia to make their highways safer and more efficient,” says Terry Bergan, IRD president and chief executive officer. “This new contract addition is also further validation of our strong position in the U.S.-ITS industry, and we will continue to build on this market presence and our reputation for quality and service for the benefit of our shareholders.”
