Abstract

Dynamic Glare Assessment – Defining Undue Glare in Night-time Driving Designing Automotive Lighting Systems is largely keeping the fine balance between providing as much light to the driver and preventing the other road users from undue glare. In the past years the amount of light that was tolerated in the direction of oncoming cars could conveniently be defined by maximum light intensities in certain measurement points. With the introduction of more and more adaptive lighting systems, this definition becomes more complicated. As those systems largely rely on cameras for traffic detection, their detection distance is limited. It is therefore necessary to first answer the question in what distance the systems have to able to detect other road users with lit head lights. This paper offers an answer on how to objectively measure the glare impact on drivers in real driving situations. The vision performance is constantly measured while the subject is driving towards a car with HID high beams switched on.
