CPSC Testing Begins in Austria

10/06/2007

This last week, testing of pavement surface characteristics including tire-pavement noise and texture has begun in Austria. Two exposed aggregate sites were completed including a site south of Vienna near Vösendorf, and a second site near Salzburg. Four additional sites in Austria will be evaluated this week, before moving on to Belgium. Here is both a photo and postprocessed data from the RoboTex device showing the exposed aggregate on the A1 section near Salzburg:
