Abstract: WAVE (Weigh-in-motion of Axles and Vehicles for Europe) is a research project, part-funded by the European Commission, with the objective of improving the accuracy and performance of Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) technology. It has a budget of the order of $ 2 million and will run from mid 1996 to mid 1998. It has close links and a substantial overlap of membership with COST323, a pan-European group with representatives from about 20 countries which coordinates nationally funded activities relating to WIM. The principal objectives of WAVE are: (i) to improve the accuracy of WIM systems, (ii) to develop a prototype pan-European WIM database, (iii) to develop calibration and testing procedures for WIM system performance and accuracy, particularly for cold climates and (iv) to develop a prototype fibre optic WIM sensor
