BINOCULAR AND MONOCULAR FIELD OF VIEW PERFORMANCE TEST
The primary objective of this project was to obtain field of view data from new model passenger cars, multipurpose vehicles, trucks and buses, using the binocular and monocular testing procedures contained in Docket 70-7 (NPRM) and in Alternate Procedures (AP), which were developed by Ford Motor Company. Also investigated were vision points for three direct look-to-rear situations in two passenger cars, one full size and one subcompact. The results indicated an appreciable difference in vision points because of size and configuration of the two cars. Twenty-two passenger cars, seven trucks, and one school bus were tested for forward field of view in each of two proposed methods both using binocular and monocular techniques. The passenger cars were also tested for look-to-rear binocular field of view using the vision points found in the initial look to the rear investigation.
