The California Department of Transportation, like many such departments in the United States, is working on developing a new family of electronic sensing devices for the purpose of monitoring certain characteristics of road vehicles as they move along the highway. The devices currently under development are to be located overhead individual highway traffic lanes, from where they can have a clear “view” of ground vehicles. In order to deploy these devices, there is a need to develop the capability to safely and efficiently mount them above highway traffic lanes, using existing overhead bridges and sign structures as support structures. This paper presents a technical study of a universal support platform for these devices. The study discusses such issues as mobility, reliability, and resistance to environmental and other hazards. Results of tests conducted on a prototype are also presented.
