The effects of sign luminance on the detection and recognition of traffic-control devices are mediated through contrast with the immediate surround. In addition, complex visual scenes are known to degrade visual performance with targets well above the visual threshold. A laboratory study was conducted to determine ways of measuring visual complexity and to assess the capability of changes in sign luminance to offset decrements in performance that result from added complexity. Positive results… CONTINUE READING
