Abstract

The study aimed to perform field of human’s view analysis to predict the visual interference of drivers from street lights positioning. A concentric circle with 13 quadrants was superimposed onto a photograph taken at the reference point for the field of human's view analysis. Visual interference from  light source located close to fovea would be most disturbing and gradually reduced to the peripheral. From the field of driver's view analysis superimposed with real-scenario photos, none of the street light sources was found to fall within the fovea ring. The visual interference from street lights was negligible from the driver's view.

 Keywords: Visual interference; streetlight; visual field; field of view.
