Prof. David Lovell, CEE Associate Professor, has been awarded a $212,800 grant from the National Science Foundation to develop electrophoretic, retroreflective displays for conveyance of transportation-related information.

The project consists of development and testing of a novel display technology that is both electophoretic (involves the movement and/or rotation of charged particles in response to electric fields) and variably retroreflective, which means that incident light upon the display device is reflected (when desired) in the direction whence it came. If successful, these display technologies might lead to such developments as electronically switchable roadway paints, and tunnel walls that display messages.
