      On-board Weighing System (OBWS)

      Continental’s On-board Weighing System Provides Useful Information About the Vehicle and its Load

      Load Monitoring. Anytime. Anywhere.

      Continental has developed an integrated weighing system for continuous load determination for commercial vehicles. As from 2021, the regular measurement of the gross vehicle weight is made mandatory in Europe, the digital On-board Weighing System (OBWS) will assist with compliance to the legal regulations. It will measure the vehicle weight and also give a warning as soon as the truck is overloaded – even before the start of the journey. This increases road safety and protects infrastructure. In addition, it opens up further advantages for the user, for example, reducing operating costs and making the best possible use of the load potential.

      Continental has three solutions tailor-made for the specific application: with ultrasonic sensors on the air spring or  on the shock absorber, as well as with elongation sensors on the axle for steel-sprung vehicles and mixed fleets. The OBWS collects the data, forwards it for evaluation and makes it available via an interface, e.g. in the office, via the smartphone app or on a display in the driver’s cab. Continental offers all of this as a complete system from a single source.
