Retroreflectivity

The RetroTek-M by Reflective Measurement Systems is a retroreflectometer which is used the measure the retroreflectivity of road makings. Retroreflectivity is one technology used to enhance the readability and perception of information displayed in low-light and night-time conditions. The transport industry recognizes that legible traffic signs and quality pavement markings are important for highway safety, especially in low-light conditions and at night.

Reducing the cost of surveys

Major changes are on the horizon for the road condition surveys. Over 70% of new cars are predicted to be equipped with lane-departure warning systems by 2023. These require good-quality road markings, which will increase the demand for them to be properly maintained. In order to do this road authorities will be dependent on quality [...]

Pavement markings fit for ADAS

Against a backdrop of evolving minimum road marking standards, a new mobile retroreflectometer has emerged that allows a full road lane to be surveyed in a single pass Words | Joe Turley, Reflective Measurement Systems Ltd, Ireland Vehicle manufacturers and their advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) suppliers are achieving rapid advances in automation, making their [...]

Pavement Striping Industry – Thank You America.

An Irishman’s journey through Texas, Mississippi and Louisiana. I have just returned after two very enjoyable working weeks on the road, meeting very dedicated and hardworking people in the pavement striping industry in the USA. All were ready and primed to start striping contracts, if only the wet weather would stop. Us Irish [...]

Classifying degraded road markings using computational neural nets (CDRMCN)

Identification and Quality Classification of Pavement Road Markings. This is an AI research project using computational neural nets to identify the characteristics of road markings and quantifying their quality (wear). This will allow the identification of the type of marking and classify the shape and wear patterns of center road markings (such as lines, arrows, [...]

RetroTek-M Mobile pavement retroreflectometer is suitable for the measurement of RL of wet road markings.

Test Certificate regarding the suitability of the RetroTek-M mobile pavement retroreflectometer for measuring the coefficient of retroreflected luminance RL of the surfaces of road markings in wet conditions. These tests were performed in a laboratory and on the road in December 2018 & January 2019 Originator: This report has been generated by Reflective Measurement Systems [...]
