This report presents a historical account of the development of rear lighting systems. The account is based partly on a comprehensive review of the available documented sources. Various details of both technical developments and lighting standards are covered. Then the rear end crash situation is discussed. It is noted that rear end crashes constitute a large and increasing problem in present road traffic. This is followed by an analysis of the various functions of rear signaling systems and… 

Enhanced Rear Lighting And Signaling Systems: Literature Review and Analyses of Alternative System Concepts

The goal of this research effort is to develop and test a small number of enhanced rear-lighting concepts that have the potential to reduce the number of rear-end collisions, to include problems with stopped vehicles.

ENHANCED REAR LIGHTING AND SIGNALING SYSTEMS TASK 2 REPORT: TESTING AND OPTIMIZATION OF HIGH-LEVEL AND STOPPED/SLOWLY-MOVING VEHICLE REAR SIGNALING SYSTEMS

This document reports on Task 2 of the research effort, which consisted of two experiments to design and optimize systems with regard to four dependent measures (Attention-Getting Rating, Discomfort-Glare Rating, Horizontal Peripheral Detection Angle, and Diagonal peripheral detection Angle) while also taking system complexity into account.

Test Road Experiment on Imminent Warning Rear Lighting and Signaling

The methods and results of this study can be applied to the future design and evaluation of automotive rear-end lighting designed to reduce RE crashes.

Effects of Dedicated Stop-Lamps on Nighttime Rear-End Collisions

Abstract This study was designed to evaluate whether dedicated stop lamps, in comparison to stop lamps that are functionally combined with tail or turn signals, provide additional safety benefits at

Technology and styling trends in automotive lighting in North America

This paper is a brief review of technology and styling trends of automotive lighting in North America. It also provides some background on the evolution and development of Automotive lighting in

Potential safety effects of a frontal brake light for motor vehicles

A video based lab experiment found that the fact that only half of the decelerations were accompanied by the brake light resulted in increased identification times for deceleration, which could be interpreted as an indicator of a potential safety effect of the frontal brake light.

Road Safety and Vehicular Light Standardization in Nigeria Amidst Ameriacan and UN Regulation Standard (WP.29)

Since the first Ford’s Model Ts vehicle in 1908 which has metamorphosis into the present day hybrid vehicles, yearly auto-crash leads to the death of 1.2 million people, injury and disability of

Next-Generation Driver Information Systems

This thesis proposes an overtaking assistance system based on vehicle-tovehicle communication, video-streaming and augmented reality that introduces the concept of the virtual windshield, and provides a driving simulation framework for testing driver information systems based on vehicular communications.

Virtual Windshields: Merging Reality and Digital Content to Improve the Driving Experience

By combining the new paradigm of Vehicular Ad Hoc Networking (VANET) with AR human machine interfaces, it is shown that it is possible to design novel cooperative Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), that base the creation of AR content on the information collected from neighbouring vehicles or roadside infrastructures.

Vehicle-Driver Communications to Reduce Rear-End Collisions: What Makes Sense and Why?

Data is used to infer the information that should be displayed to drivers to reduce rear-end collisions primarily by aiding in detection of closure and estimation of relative velocity and preliminary tests showed that drivers can readily interpret the signals from a lighting system which codes the needed information.
