Abstract— Colour vision standards should reflect changes in our understanding of the nature of these defects as well as technological advances that place less importance upon the visual senses of the human operator. Therefore it is suggested that visual standards be subject to routine reviews in order to assess their suitability for modern. work environments. This paper gives a chronological account of the introduction of colour vision standards by several national transport authorities and… 
Colour vision standards: Past, present, and future
TLDR
It becomes necessary to understand the role colour vision plays in the modern cockpit and suggest the colour vision standards accordingly, and understand the evolution of colour vision testing and colour theories, so as to develop or adopt a more suitable test for the changing aviation scenario.
Does defective colour vision really matter
TLDR
There is an impressive body of evidence to show that colour figures importantly in many occupations and that some of those with defective colour vision will perform less effectively in those occupations because of their defect.
Are colour vision standards justified for the transport industry?

TLDR
This paper reviews the evidence relating to colour vision standards in the transport industries and concludes that a strong case can be made for their retention in public transport.
Electronic Flight Information System displays and colour defective observers
TLDR
Results show that observers with normal colour vision and those identified as hiing made significantly fewer errors than those with other types of defective colour vision when using Boeing 747–400 EFIS displays.
Protans and PAPI: Recognition of a two colour code by persons with defective colour vision
TLDR
It is concluded that the majority of colour vision defective observers are not able to identify a red/white signal system reliably despite the code being a simple two category code and the fact that brightness differences between the red and white signals were an available cue.
Operational Assessment of Color Vision
TLDR
The computer-based tests proved to be highly sensitive in identifying color vision deficiencies, in some cases more sensitive than the anomaloscope, and there was a trend of was low, and many color abnormal subjects, especially mildly and moderately deficient subjects, performed within normal levels.
Colour blindness and driving

TLDR
In 1970, it was argued that there should be a colour vision standard for drivers of motor vehicles or at least for Drivers of large commercial vehicles but I also advocated that there could be improvements to road and vehicle signal lights to make them more recognisable for drivers with a color vision deficiency.
Consistency of secondary colour vision tests in transport industries.
TLDR
There was low consistency between the colour vision tests examined and the need for standardization across the transport industries is highlighted.
Mobile Standards-Based Traffic Light Detection in Assistive Devices for Individuals with Color-Vision Deficiency
TLDR
This paper presents a robust, traffic-standards-based, and computationally efficient method for detecting the status of the traffic lights without relying on Global Positioning System, lidar, radar information, or prior (map-based) knowledge.

TLDR
It is noted that the normals who fail this lantern test appear to do so not because of poor colour discrimination but because the coloured stimuli presented by the lantern have a point brilliance close to the average chromatic threshold.
Perception of Pattern and Colour in the Stabilized Retinal Image
TLDR
The examination of targets in which colour gradations and major pattern variations occur simultaneously has, however, not been reported; and it is not easy to predict the phenomena which might be expected to occur in these conditions.
INFORMATION CONCERNING COLOUR DERIVED FROM A SINGLE BOUNDARY
TLDR
Complete information leading to perception of hue and saturation as well as brightness, and not merely differences of hue etc. on the two sides, can be derived from a single boundary.
VISUAL STANDARDS FOR DRIVING

TLDR
It is found that there is little unanimity in what constitutes an “adequate” standard of vision for drivers of either private or public vehicles, or in the testing procedures employed.
An Improved Apparatus for Producing a Stabilized Retinal Image
TLDR
Criteria for defining the efficiency of an apparatus for stabilizing the retinal image are formulated and a new technique which employs a telescopic normal incidence system makes it possible to obtain geometrical compensation both for rotations and for translations of the eye.
The 1976 accident experience of civilian pilots with static physical defects.
TLDR
The 1974 and 1975 aircraft accident experiences of civilian pilots with eight selected static physical defects with significantly more accidents than were expected on the basis of observed-to-expected ratios were examined and reorted.
Colour-Blindness, its Dangers, and its Detection
TLDR
The general features of this remarkable defect of vision have lately been exciting much attention, and have given rise within the last few years to a somewhat extensive literature, involving points on which there has been much difference of opinion and some energetic controversy.

IN a former paper with the above title (NATURE, vol. iii. p. 234) I described some combinations of absorbing media capable of transmitting the red and green, while stopping the other rays of the
Utility of several clinical tests of color-defective vision in predicting daytime and nighttime performance with the aviation signal light gun.
TLDR
It is indicated that color defective people can identify flashes from a signal light gun better at night than during the day, and the Titmus Plate was the poorest predictor.

TLDR
The appearance of targets consisting of central disks of one color surrounded by annuli of another color were investigated under conditions such that the inner edge of the annulus was stabilized but the outer boundary was not.
