Raised Pavement Markers (RPMs) Assessment Using Highway Speed Mobile Retro Reflectivity Technology

The objective of this project is to measure network-level raised pavement markers' (RPMs') retroreflectivity using highway speed mobile retroreflectivity unit (MRU) technology. This project includes assessing the feasibility of network-level RPM retroreflectivity, development of equipment/software, determination of the measurement precision, and implementation of survey protocol for the Pavement Marking Management System.
