One of the expansion solutions successfully researched and developed by Silver Sea is the smart weighing station management solution – SCM. SCM uses surveillance cameras and automatic license plate recognition technology that allows to “Identify the total weight” of the vehicle and “Print out the weight sheet” with images from surveillance cameras.

SCM is operated by vehicle position sensors, barriers, card readers, etc., combined with surveillance cameras to create a transparent vehicle weighing system, avoiding frauds and operating fully automatically. With the ability to monitor and control remote operations, report images taken from the camera on the data linked to accounting software, business management, parking management, etc., allowing the creation of a system with closed management and optimal for businesses.


The system includes:

  • Weighing platform, weighing indicator, LED panel displaying the weight (available equipment of the weighing station)
  • Camera to take pictures of front and rear license plates of cars and cameras to take pictures of the whole weighing station, camera to take pictures of the weighing room (optional)
  • Computer installs Weighing Station Management software using camera and automatic license plate recognition SCM
  • Printer
  • Vehicle position sensors, red and green signal lights, card readers, …(optional)
