Detecting Cyclists at Night : visibility effects of reflector placement and different lighting conditions 

Figures and Topics from this paper

Effects of night-time bicycling visibility aids on vehicle passing distance.
It is suggested that bicyclists should incorporate additional visibility aids to encourage safer passing distances of vehicles at night-time, due to enhanced visual cues for drivers. Expand
Testing of bicycle lighting: Method development and evaluation
To capture the effect of generic bicycle light features on perception, behaviour, and acceptance, one single method is not enough, and standardised laboratory tests should be combined with research-question–specific dynamic testing. Expand
Novel Automotive Lamp Configurations: Computer-Based Assessment of Perceptual Efficiency
It is suggested that facilitating object perception in traffic by highlighting relevant features of vehicles could increase visual performance in both speed and discriminability, and the associated gain in eye movement efficiency may decrease fatigue. Expand


Night‐time pedestrian conspicuity: effects of clothing on drivers’ eye movements
Drivers’ responses and eye movements were assessed as they approached pedestrians at night in order to explore the relative conspicuity benefits of different configurations of retroreflectiveExpand
Using reflective clothing to enhance the conspicuity of bicyclists at night.
It is found that ankle and knee markings are a simple and very effective approach for enhancing bicyclist conspicuity at night. Expand
Visibility aids for pedestrians and cyclists: a systematic review of randomised controlled trials.
The main outcome measures were pedestrian and cyclist-motor vehicle collisions and injuries, and drivers'/observers' responses in the detection and recognition time, distance and frequency. Expand
The use of visual cues to determine the intent of cyclists in traffic
It is suggested that human prediction of intention is to a large extent relying on a single “strong” indicator, e.g., that the cyclist makes a clear “head movement”. Expand
Visual perception of biological motion and a model for its analysis
This paper reports the first phase of a research program on visual perception of motion patterns characteristic of living organisms in locomotion. Such motion patterns in animals and men are termedExpand
