2001-04: Pavement Temperature Sensor Accuracy

Objective

This project sought to determine the accuracy and variation in readings of various pavement temperature sensors, both in-pavement and mobile, by first developing a method to determine the "true" pavement temperature for comparison purposes. In the past, there have been studies comparing accuracy of various devices, but none of them have included a method of determining true readings. The final report for this project includes descriptions of how well various sensors performed under various conditions.
