Effects of Flickering Seizures on Road Drivers and Passengers

The road environment includes many factors that, due to the repetitions of light signals within a limited area of the field of vision, can cause discomfort and in some cases flickering seizures among drivers and passengers. These potentially dangerous factors may occur when driving along an open road and in tunnels. The authors developed an experimental program in order to deepen the main factors of the road environment that are able to trigger seizures due to the flickering effect and also to provide useful indications for designing and maintaining roads that are safe for all types of user, including photosensitive subjects.
