TTI’s Visibility Research Laboratory is located in the TTI Headquarters building on The Texas A&M University System’s RELLIS Campus. The lab features a 140-foot-long by 15-foot-wide corridor for testing retroreflective materials as well as coatings, lights and other technologies designed to provide nighttime visibility. The lab also has ventilation systems to allow full-size vehicles to run in the lab while conducting human factors testing and evaluating installed headlamp illumination.
For the last 50 years, TTI researchers have conducted full-scale, closed-course night-time driving studies at the A&M System’s RELLIS Campus. This outdoor facility allows for static and dynamic visibility and human factors research at speeds of up to 70 mph. The Visibility Research Laboratory complements this full-scale testing facility.
