Current control routines of heavy goods vehicles are based on a kind of first-come-first-served approach with the help of the inspection operators experience and intuition. This report is a result from the Automated Vehicle Control activity in the META (More Efficient Transport with ARKTRANS) project. It provides a conceptual specification of an automatic vehicle control system where a decision support system supports the selection of vehicles for manual inspections. The decision support is based on state-of-the-art sensors and cameras that identify and measure passing vehicles and on use of vehicle and transport undertaking information from national and international registries. Consequently, the manual vehicle inspections can become more targeted and inspection resources can are used more efficient. The ARKTRANS framework is used to document the automatic vehicle control in order to ensure a technology independent system specification and a common deployment across control stations in Norway.
