Contour Lighting for Safety and Appearance 2001-01-0452
Traffic densities are at an all-time high. The visual task for safe driving is increasingly demanding. Especially older drivers find it progressively trying to use their vehicles at night or under low contrast driving situations.
This paper illustrates how contrast enhancement can increase safety eliminate some of the visual strain and reduce driving stress. It shows how contour lighting can ease orientation in traffic and speed up reaction to unexpected events.
