About the research

This evaluation featured a trailer mounted highway advisory radio transmitter. The mobile maintenance operation during which this device was to be tested was performed in such a way that the device was no longer useful for its intended purpose. Data collection was cancelled. Maintenance procedures related to striping operations in Kansas are not conducive to effective use of HAR.

Addendum: Since the completion of this evaluation and the associated report, the Kansas DOT has purchased several mobile HAR units for use at the State Fair, at NASCAR events at the Kansas Speedway, and at other events as needed. Anecdotal reports of the effectiveness of the devices are very favorable and continued use is planned.

Vendor: Highway Info Systems
