Ensuring Accurate and Reliable Retroreflection Testing
RoadVista, a Gamma Scientific company, is committed to making roads visibly safer.
Retroreflective materials, such as those found on traffic signs and road markings, are designed to reflect incoming light back towards its source in a highly efficient manner. Retroreflection testing ensures those reflective materials are functioning properly and providing adequate visibility at night or in low light conditions.
With four decades of highway safety, leadership, and innovation, RoadVista has set the standard in retroreflectometer accuracy, reliability, and usability. We offer a range of state-of-the-art retroreflectometers as well as a comprehensive suite of testing services.
RETROFLECTION IN THE CONTEXT OF AUTONOMOUS DRIVING
With the emergence of autonomous driving, accurate measurement of roadway lighting is a critical component in the ability of vehicles to detect and measure the distance and location of objects. This is especially important at night or in low-light conditions when visibility is limited. Accurate reflectance measurement allows the vehicle to perceive its surroundings correctly. This includes detecting road markings, identifying objects and obstacles, and accurately navigating in different lighting conditions. If the reflectance measurement is inaccurate, it can lead to an incorrect interpretation of the environment, resulting in incorrect driving decisions and potentially dangerous situations. Accurate measurement of retroreflection and roadway lighting is an essential aspect of autonomous driving, allowing the vehicle to gather information about its environment and make decisions based on that information. It is necessary for the safe operation of autonomous vehicles and is a critical technology that makes autonomous driving possible.
