Pavement Marking Presence Tool

This research project has two objectives. The first objective is to develop a mobile (smart phone) tool to allow users the ability to assess the existing pavement marking presence (the amount of pavement marking on the pavement surface) and also help with quality assurance of newly installed pavement marking products that are not made up of a continuous solid line (MMA splatter pattern is one example). The second objective is to develop an easy to use tool that inspectors can use to assess retroreflectivity and color using their smart phone or tablet.
