Adam Pike is an Associate Research Engineer with the Signs and Markings Program of the Texas A&M Transportation Institute. He has conducted research on traffic signing, pavement marking, and work zones with an emphasis on traffic engineering principles, visibility needs, human factors, cost-benefit analysis, and safety implications. Mr. Pike holds a Master of Science degree from Texas A&M University. He is active with multiple committees of the Transportation Research Board, is a member of the Signing and Marking Materials Committee, and is also active with multiple committees of ASTM International.
Mr. Pike will discuss the differences between how humans and machines (cameras and LIDAR) perceive pavement markings and what implications this may have for future autonomous vehicle systems.
