Research and Development

Our product has been developed by the team at the University of Melbourne and extensively tested both in laboratory under various loading conditions and in field under real traffic loads. The University of Melbourne is the licensor of the technology to Porous Lane.

The performance of this product under different loading conditions has been studied and understood.
