Intelligent Mass

Intelligent Mass is a feature that can be used with applications of the National Telematics Framework.

It allows vehicle mass information to be collected in a standardised way so it can be used with other telematics data collected from vehicles.

How it can be used

Intelligent Mass enables road managers and regulators to include mass monitoring as a condition within new or existing schemes on their road networks.

It draws upon the use of Category B or C OBM systems.

Data collected from OBM systems is combined with telematics data in a standardised form.

Interim OBM Solution

The Interim OBM Solution uses OBM systems linked to the IAP, and enables road managers to manage the compliance of both route and mass conditions of heavy vehicles operating under specific conditions of access.

This means:

  • The Interim OBM Solution was established as a short-term measure until Intelligent Mass functionality was made available through the National Telematics Framework.
  • The Interim OBM Solution is a transitional arrangement used only in NSW and QLD.
  • The use of the Interim OBM will be transitioned over time to Intelligent Mass.
  • Intelligent Mass is scheduled to become operational and available from the end of 2020 (subject to the availability of Smart OBM Systems).

How it can be used

The Interim OBM Solution may be used for productivity reforms that require knowing the location and mass of vehicles. This helps to manage access involving vulnerable structures, such as bridges.
