    In urban areas, assessing the visibility of the visual cues used by motorists to make driving decisions poses a number of methodological problems. To investigate these, the authors decided to conduct laboratory experiments to investigate the detection of pedestrians at night-time. The geometric...

    Previous studies have shown that the visibility of a front turn signal is decreased if a headlamp is located near the turn signal. Consequently, both the US and ECE regulations require the turn signals to be more intense in such situations. However, it is unclear how adjacent light sources...

    To predict perceived glare it is necessary to understand the luminance level to which the human visual system is adapted. When driving a car the luminance in our field of view varies from very low levels (below 1 cd/ m2) measured at the road surface to very high levels (higher than 10000 cd/ m2)...

    H. W. Leibowitz and his students (H. W. Leibowitz & D. A. Owens, 1977; H. W. Leibowitz, D. A. Owens, & R. B. Post, 1982) hypothesized that drivers are overconfident at night because they are unaware that their visual recognition abilities are selectively degraded in low illumination while visual...

    A field study to characterize the impact of headlamp intensity on visual detection of small targets when entering high-speed curves was conducted. The results demonstrate that the relationship between headlamp intensity a n d visual performance depends upon the target's location and the amount...
