TitleEvaluating retro-reflective screens to aid conspicuity of tabletop carriages at passive level crossings
AuthorsBaldock MRJ, Stokes CS, Thompson JP
Year2019
TypeConference Paper
AbstractThe aim of this project is to design and undertake an experimental evaluation of the potential effectiveness of a prototype retro-reflective strip or screen installed at level crossings for the purpose of improving the detection by motorists of tabletop carriages and other trains at the crossings. A prototype screen was produced and footage recorded of trains passing through a crossing at night. A laboratory-based experiment using the footage will be run to assess whether the screen improves detection of, and reaction time to, the presence of trains. The presentation will describe the experiment and the results.
