Modeling Peripheral Visibility under Headlamp Illumination

  title={Modeling Peripheral Visibility under Headlamp Illumination},
  author={John D. Bullough},
Undoubtedly, the detection of peripheral objects and pedestrians while driving is an important visual task. However, there are few data that describe the impact of parameters such as headlamp illumination, peripheral angle and target reflectance upon the speed and accuracy with which one can detect peripheral targets. The present paper outlines a framework for the development of a model that predicts reaction times and detection percentages to small targets of varying reflectance, and located… CONTINUE READING
