Road lighting and headlights : Luminance measurements and automobile lighting simulations

  title={Road lighting and headlights : Luminance measurements and automobile lighting simulations},
  author={Aleksanteri Ekrias and Marjukka Eloholma and Liisa Halonen and Xian-Jie Song and Xin Zhang and Y. Henry Wen},
This paper focuses on lighting dimensioning and lighting quality of traffic lighting. The work considers the factors that are important in creating optimal lighting conditions and luminous environment for night-time driving. The work is based on simulating, measuring and analyzing traffic lighting. The work introduces a new method for road luminance measurements and analysis. For simulation of automobile lights, a new method based on a real scene is introduced. r 2007 Elsevier Ltd. All rights… CONTINUE READING
