The comparison of vehicle headlamps
MetadataShow full item record
The aim of this article is the comparison of vehicle headlamps in terms of pedestrians' visibility at nighttime conditions. The study was designed to gain results, which could serve as a basis for the pedestrian-vehicle accident analysis in terms of visibility during night drive. For this study were used comparable vehicles (same vehicle type and model year) with different headlamps type. Three different headlamps (halogen, xenon and LED headlamps) were used for the analysis. Experiments were carried out under similar conditions (straight road, nighttime, no disturbing factors). During a series of static tests, the vehicle approached at predefined distances to the figurant - pedestrian standing on the right side of the roadway. For the luminance analysis were used Luminance Distribution Analyser LumiDISP - software for analysing the luminance conditions based on evaluation of image data from digital photos.
