  • A laboratory human factors experiment was conducted to understand the color rendering properties of various LED-based reading lights. Human subjects rated their preference for a given scene illuminated by a test light source compared to an identical scene illuminated by a reference light source. In another experiment the same subjects viewed and rated the scenes individually when illuminated by a test light source. LED-based light sources were preferred more than halogen and incandescent light… CONTINUE READING
