Pavement Marking Patterns and Widths - Human Factors Study

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  10/14/2019


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 ADASs and 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.
