MAAP Acquisition Phase Our MAAP team has crossed the US, coast to coast to promote the improvement of pavement markings for both human and machine drivers, and is now home! Leg One: Our team leaves Jacksonville on an over 5,000 mile trip across as many as 17 states over a 2-week period with over 100 hours of driving time MAAP 1 – Starting LineThe Jacksonville Florida starting line of Measure Across America. MAAP 2 – SponsorsSpecial thanks to our Sponsors: RoadVista, Central Seal, Preform LLC, Pavement Markings LLC, Hog Technologies, LimnTech Scientific, Potters Industries, CalTrans, MoDOT, and the KansasDOT. MAAP 3 – Control OverviewOverview of the control panel of the RoadVista Laserlux G7. MAAP 4 – Charging and HandoffThe first charging stop-off in Live Oak Florida, where Greg hands off the keys to the MAAP Tesla to Gregory and Taylor Driskell. MAAP 5 – Day 3 in DallasThe third day of the MAAP trip in Dallas headed to Van Horn Texas. MAAP 6 – Profile Line Performance ProblemGreg finds that profile lines look great visually but reflectivity readings are poor. MAAP 7 – Skip Line Great by Day, Gone by NightStill heading to Van Horn Texas, the skip lines look great by day, but night readings show almost no retroreflectivity. MAAP 8 – What Line? I Don’t See No Stinking Line!Greg sees no line visually, but the LLG7 and the Tesla automated vehicle detect the lines! MAAP 9 – A Few Tips From TexasIn Texas, Greg gives some quick tips for maintenance and shows how the LLG7 works with proper geometry for retroreflectivity measurements while enjoying the 102˚ “Dry” heat. MAAP 10 – Look Mom No Hands… or LinesGreg and Chris see how the Tesla automated vehicle detects the lines even though there are no markings visible to the human eye. MAAP 11 – Buttons in a Line Seem FineThe Tesla detected the Botts’ dots, “turtles” or “buttons” in the road to avoid a roadway work zone. MAAP 12 – Calibration QuickieGreg and Chris do a quick calibration of the LLG7 with the calibration plate. MAAP 13 – Speed Without LimitsThis video showcases how the LLG7 successfully measures at high speeds. MAAP 14 – Course Pavement Rough RetroGreat explanation of retroreflectivity issues on coarse pavement surfaces. MAAP 15 – You Won’t Win Going ThinIn southern Arizona, Greg sees some nice new lines, where reflectivity is lower than expected due to the striping paint not having enough millage thickness. MAAP 16 – How Low Can it GoGreg shows how the LLG7 Auto Positioning System works with auto-leveling. MAAP 17 – Just The Stats ManA quick update in Arizona with the MAAP LLG7 stats to date. MAAP 18 – Excellent Sight at NightJust outside Santa Ana, California, we see how well the LLG7 operates at night at higher speeds. MAAP 19 – Sponsor Vid San DiegoIn sunny San Diego, MAAP halfway point, Greg takes some time to thank the sponsors once again. MAAP 20 – Fun VidA show of strength, for both the LLG7 squid mount and Greg! MAAP 21 – Cleaning for the CamerasDiscussing the importance of maintaining a clean windshield 4 assisted Driving Systems. MAAP 22 – Reading Between the LinesDemonstrating the difference between daytime and nighttime line width. MAAP 23 – Can Your Retroreflectometer Do This?An incredibly detailed look at a marking’s retroreflective performance from edge to edge. MAAP 24 – What’s the Deal with CrackfillA close look at how crackfill interferes with marking visibility. MAAP 25 – A Shadow of DoubtAn observation of how shadows can effect center lane steering systems. MAAP 26 – The Night When the Lights Came on in GeorgiaA look at some very bright markings on I75 in Georgia. MAAP 27 – Faster Than a Speeding HurricaneA very late night wrap up on the last leg of MAAP as we rush back to Florida to prepare for the storm! MAAP 28 – Low Retro Due to DewA foggy evening and a buildup of dew on the Road Markingsmake for low retroreflectivity.
