Breakthroughs in Vision and Visibility for Highway Safety Workshop Summary Report

Description:

“On August 13-14, 2014, at the Turner-Fairbanks Highway Research Center in McLean, VA, the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA’s) Office of Safety Research and Development and the Office of Safety, with support from the Exploratory Advanced Research Program, convened a 2-day workshop, “Breakthroughs in Vision and Visibility for Highway Safety.” Investigators have previously conducted research in a variety of areas surrounding visibility issues, including efforts exploring retroreflectivity and pavement-marking signs, and legibility of fonts; however, much of this work has been tapering off. The objective of this workshop was to identify gaps in highway visibility research, explore innovative tools and techniques to fill these gaps, and determine the roll for FHWA.”
