Turntable Road-Marking Test System
For time-saving examinations of road markings under the same boundary conditions BASt uses the RPA. The test duration depends on the subsequent intended use for the relevant road marking system. Thus, road marking systems for brief, temporary use are subject to only 100,000 wheel roll-over cycles and marking systems for long-term use are subject to up to 4 million wheel roll-over cycles. On average, approximately 150 different marking systems can be tested in one year.
