Realistic Simulation of Human Contrast Perception after Headlight Glares in Driving Simulations


Realistic Simulation of Human Contrast Perception after Headlight Glares in Driving Simulations

The aim of this work is to enable the simulation of the experience of short-time glare effects in a driving simulator by adjusting the display contrast according to human perception. The simulation is displayed on a standard LDR-monitor under office conditions and the prevailing illumination is incorporated. As contrast perception is highly subjective, a psychophysical experiment was performed under realistic night driving conditions, including background illumination as well as a representative driving situation to permit realistic driving behavior.
