Paper Abstract

The structure, principle, and some data of a truck-load sensing system are described. A piece of special rubber is used as an elastic element, and the optical fiber curved in spirals is embedded in the rubber. When the load is put on the rubber, the rubber is compressed. The light intensity thus decreases because of the radius of the bend fiber changes, and the weight can be determined according to the light loss ratio. This system consists of bridge approaches, platforms, sensors, and single-chip processor.
