CIE publication on discomfort glare in traffic

Overview of research methods, mathematical models and relevant variables

A uniform model for the discomfort glare in traffic far does not exist so far. The new report of the CIE (International Commission on Illumination), titled “Discomfort glare in road lighting and vehicle lighting“, aims to change this. A team of internationally renowned authors provides an overview of the research methods, mathematical models and relevant variables on 40 pages and with 9 figures and tables. The report intends to encourage further research by means of listed instruments and parameters for the development of a more robust model based on a greater body of data. The publication is written in English, with a short summary in German and French.

The CIE publication “Discomfort Glare in Road Lighting and Vehicle Lighting“ (CIE 243:2021; ISBN: 978-3-902842-92-3) is available in the CIE web shop.
