Highway Lighting Without Glare - A New Lighting Technique

Jan 01, 1959

There is a need for evaluating a highway lighting system based on two primary criteria, it must provide good visibility while maintaining comfort at the highest practical level. The system outlined in this paper can provide good visibility and obstacle discernment. In addition, it will be shown that with the proposed distribution a system which is virtually free from glare can be achieved. While it is apparent that complete elimination of veiling glare cannot be expected in the first optical designs, it does exist as a goal.
