Measuring Maturity

Determining the technology readiness level (TRL) is a way for everyone involved in a project to use a defined scale to assess a technology's maturity. TRL assessments provide guidance to simplify the process, determine the maturity of technologies, and identify next steps in the research process. This article describes how the Federal Highway Administration has applied TRL assessments to a broad range of research across industries and project types. Using TRLs offers several benefits for transportation researchers and program managers, including improved project communications, project outcomes, and research program management.
