Abstract:

Taxiway guidance signs, 3 feet high and 4 feet wide of a type similar to those used on highways, were evaluated for airport use by means of simulation and actual field trials. Retro-reflective sheeting of red, yellow and green colors was evaluated for color coding application in a taxiway guidance system. Tests also were conducted on sign illumination provided by a light source located ahead and below the signs. Author
