Abstract: Due to the development of road infrastructure and business trade, transportation of goods is increasing day-by-day. Each vehicle has its own configuration, size, power and capacity. However, heavy vehicles are often used to carry loads beyond their capacity. Therefore overloading is one of the major problems which affect truckers as well as other motorists and pedestrians going near-by. In order to provide a convenient solution to this problem, a web-based tracking system is proposed. A heavy duty vehicle which is overloaded and moving at high speed may cause the vehicle to loose balance while making turns along the roads. This problem may also cause the tire to burst, which in turn makes it difficult to control the vehicle. Communication module is interfaced with a microcontroller which takes data from global positioning system receiver to locate the current position of the overloaded vehicle. This unit is majorly controlled by an electronic control unit. A sensing element is placed at the axle point of the vehicle to concentrate on the total weight of the vehicle. A software study is done to extract the global positioning system data from GPRMC format. The proposed system is simulated and tested for semi-real data. The received data is transmitted to the control room user for further improvement in traffic regulation and road safety.
