Testing and Calibration Methods for RWIS Sensors

The objective of this research is to develop practical guidelines for testing and calibration methods for reliable operation of RWIS sensors in field deployments. Methods for RWIS atmospheric sensors are expected to be available in existing literature and practice; therefore, the substance of this research effort will be the development and testing of methods for RWIS pavement surface and subsurface sensors. These methods should have the potential to be incorporated in performance standards and be used for data quality assurance. (The guidelines shall be produced using dual units, U.S. customary units and metric [S.I.]. The primary measurement will reflect prevailing practice in the subject area.)
