Pavement Marking Patterns and Widths – Human Factors Study

The principal focus of this study is to investigate appropriate pavement marking dimensions and contrast with respect to human vision and driver comfort. As a secondary effort, this research will also evaluate the implications of pavement marking dimensions on machine vision technology that is used in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and automated vehicles (AVs). The results of this study will provide insight as to how MnDOT can effectively leverage its resources to provide pavement markings that effectively meet the needs of all road users.
