XCES Vehicle Load Monitoring System is inbuilt within a vehicle to control overloading in heavy trucks and passenger vehicle carrying vehicles by stopping the vehicle engine from starting in case the vehicle is overloaded. Using a weight sensor, the system is able to measure the current weight of the loaded vehicle and then evaluate whether it exceeds the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or not. If the current weight exceeds the GVWR, the system concurrently stops the vehicle engine from starting and notifies the driver about the overload by making an alarm sound and blinking a warning light in the driver’s dashboard. In case the system is tampered with, compromised, or damaged by cutting wire connections or short-circuited, an SMS text message is sent to road authorities using a GSM hardware device to alert them of the system breach.
