As cars and trucks are more aerodynamically designed, the demand for small, uniquely styled front and rear lamps has increased. In addition, because driver visibility plays a key role in driver performance and safety, research in the area of lighting and visibility continues to progress. This reference presents the leading-edge technology that demonstrates how today's lighting engineers and researchers are developing improved lighting and visibility systems for tomorrow's vehicles. Sample contents include: reaction times to high-contrast brake lamps; rearward vision, driver confidence, and discomfort glare using an electrochromic rearview mirror; development of smoothly curved reflector for headlamps; beam controllable headlighting system; and more
