Wireless Roadside Inspection (WRI)

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Association (FMCSA) has embraced ITS systems in an effort to significantly increase the number of commercial motor vehicle (CMV) and driver roadside inspections conducted each year.  The goal of WRI is to improve highway safety through better-targeted enforcement and increased deterrence of unsafe operations.  WRI technologies/systems transmit driver- and vehicle-related data wirelessly via a “Safety Data Message Set” to public sector infrastructure, which then queries existing carrier and driver credentialing databases and returns safety-related information to the roadside inspector.  It is envisioned WRI data would be linked with the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) as well as state-level CMV data sources.
