Euramet, the European Association of National Metrology Institutes, in 2017 funded, within the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR), the project 16NRM02 SURFACE “Pavement surface characterisation for smart and efficient road lighting”.
Task of SURFACE consortium is to solve the current shortcomings on road surface photometry knowledge: providing an analysis of the current state of measurement devices and methods, ensure the traceability chain on luminance coefficient measurements, building a database of current pavements reflectance, suggesting new measurement geometries and investigating additional aspects for road users safety needs related to visual conditions and pavement reflectance knowledge.
The main objective is to provide CIE and CEN with new reference data of present road surfaces, new reference geometries for pavements measurement useful for all road users.
Due to COVID-19 impact SURFACE is ending December 2020, and all in-presence events have been cancelled. To share SURFACE results, the consortium is organizing a series of live webinar in the months before the end of the project
Please note: SURFACE and CIE TC 4-50 share the same objectives and have a long history of strong and fruitful relationship: at the end of each SURFACE Webinar event, a CIE TC4-50 meeting will follow.
The dates for the initial webinars offered in June and titles of the following webinars are given in the accompanying document.
