International Symposium on Traffic Signs & Pavement Markings
3 October, 2019 - 4 October, 2019
Traffic signs & pavement markings have been in use for over 100 years to provide essential guidance and delineation of the travel path.
In the ensuing years, the performance of these systems has been greatly expanded with the introduction of retroreflective optics to increase visibility at night and in wet night time conditions.
Today, well designed and maintained traffic signs & pavement markings have proven safety benefits. Drivers able to understand the road environment and make informed decisions are less prone to run-off road accidents.
In the future, however, human-led vehicles will slowly give way to partial-to-full automated vehicles operating in expanding conditions. How can agencies prepare for this trend while continuing to provide safe and efficient travel for today’s drivers?
This symposium will take stock of international experience in the design and maintenance of traffic signs and pavement markings, and of global efforts to roll out new guidelines for connected & autonomous driving, through a cross-sector panel of road agencies, research institutions and industry stakeholders.
