MOTOR VEHICLE REAR LIGHTING AND SIGNALING: EFFECTS OF SPACING, POSITION, INTENSITY, AND COLOR. AN APPLIED-LITERATURE REVIEW
The review is designed to determine the current status of research dealing with spacing, position, intensity, and color of rear lighting and signaling lamps on motor vehicles. The relevant domestic as well as international applied research is included. The review contains tabular summaries of the design, results, and recommendations of 36 experimental investigations as well as reprints of the original abstracts. Finally, a synthesis of the experimental findings is presented.
