Visual Interference from Street Lights: Field of Driver's View Analysis
The study aimed to perform field of humanâ€™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 Â 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.
