THE RECOGNISABILITY OF OBSTACLES IN ROAD TRAFFIC UNDER CONDITIONS OF MESOPIC VISION

DIE ERKENNBARKEIT VON HINDERNISSEN IM STRASSENVERKEHR UNTER MESOPISCHEN SEHBEDINGUNGEN

Under twilight conditions the vision of the human eye deteriorates. In order to determine the driving capacity of professional drivers the boundary values of twilight vision must be obtained. This check may be achieved with the aid of the mesoptometer or with the nyktometer. Comparative studies show that with both devices reliable predictions regarding the quality of twilight vision can be obtained. (TRRL)
