An ideal automated routing and permitting system at a minimum would:
be user friendly and would determine an appropriate route considering vehicle size, weight, axle configuration and temporary construction constraints;
for overweight vehicles, analyze each bridge on the route using the vehicles axle weights and geometry;
for oversize vehicles, apply route limiting clearance criteria;
generate the permit, store pertinent information in a manageable data base and transmit the permit to the permittee;
be compatible with South Dakotas computer interfaces, data base formats and network architectures.
