TROY, NY - IEM Corporation, a worldwide leader in the development and production of innovative sensor-based systems for the intelligent transportation industry, is proud to have been selected by the states of Tennessee, Montana and Colorado to integrate its SIRISTMthermal brake inspection technology into key weigh stations.

SIRIS systems in all three states are currently operational. The respective automated units prescreen vehicles for potential safety problems with brakes, tires and bearings. The use of SIRIS automated thermal imaging improves the rate at which inspectors identify vehicle violations.

SIRIS was designed and built in Troy, New York under a federal Department of Transportation research grant. Fixed-site and portable SIRIS units eliminate the need for inspectors to refer to multiple computer screens to assess which vehicles may require physical examination.

Established in 1987, IEM has more than 25 years of transportation safety and security experience. Initially founded to manufacture and market its original electronic wheel gauge for the railway industry, IEM has expanded its core business to include a range of hand-held and in-track devices for railroad inspection, as well as optical and acoustic monitoring solutions for government and industrial partners around the globe.
