PASSENGER VEHICLE, LIGHT TRUCK AND VAN CONVEX MIRROR OPTIMIZATION AND EVALUATION STUDIES. VOLUME 2: EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE MIRROR CONFIGURATIONS

The purpose of the present study, was to (1) determine the effects of mirror convexity on driver performance after training, in order to isolate the optimum convexity, if any, and (2) evaluate various combinations of plane and convex mirror systems in on-the-road tests, employing the designated optimum convexities. The present volume addresses the latter investigation. A review of the optimum convexity selective study follows is also enclosed.
