Abstract: The autonomous vehicles are the future of mobility across the globe andare expected to touch the lives of every person of all ages. But this comeswith certain challenges regarding safety, reliability, cost, legal framework,regulations, etc. however, of all the concern safety and reliability are ofutmost importance for researchers and engineers. The current research isfocused on the movement of the autonomous vehicle in the work zone. The workzone is one of the most challenging areas for the autonomous vehicle to drivefrom. This is because the work zones are very dynamic, and all the constructionactivities are specific to the site condition and cannot always be predefined.The study provides a concept of how pavement marking can be used for smooth movement through the complicated work zone. Inthis study, various pavement marking signs have been designed as aconcept considering the standard colors and striping width being used in the Manualof Uniform Traffic control device (MUTCD). The study assumes that the movementof the autonomous vehicle will not be exclusive and that it will move with thedriver driven vehicle. It is expected that autonomous vehicles will requirespecial pavement marking and signage for smooth movement through the work zone.These pavement marking and signage will eventually become part of standardTraffic Control Plans (TCP) and Maintenance of Traffic Plans (MOT). Theresearch aims to study the current research being done in this area andtechnology being used for detecting various pavement markings and signages.
