The Effect of Glare on Visual Performance under Reduced Headlamp Illumination

Experiments were carried out to determine the effect of dimming vehicle forward lighting systems on target detection. The experiments were undertaken with and without headlamp glare. It was determined that, if sufficient street lighting is available, headlamps can be dimmed to reduce glare without compromising driver performance.
