The aim of this meeting is to reach consensus on recommended design criteria when lighting for pedestrians in residential roads. The key questions include:
- What should be the basis of design recommendations?
- Which metrics should be used in these recommendations?
- How many classes of lighting are required and how should they be discriminated?
- Do we have sufficient credible data?
To promote constructive discussion, attendees have been carefully invited so that we are able to address a range of issues:
Laboratory and field studies of pedestrian visual tasks:
John Bullough, Maria Johansson
Being seen by drivers:
Pedestrian conspicuity to drivers:
Pedestrian flows and RTCs:
Application / design criteria authorship:
Naomi Miller, Wout van Bommel
Broader issues of road lighting:
Present recent work on lighting for pedestrians – experimental results; strategies; evidence for national standards; etc
Discussion: can we define optimal lighting criteria based on current state of knowledge?
This will be followed by a day for presentations by PhD students, supported by CIE-UK. PhD students investigating any issue associated with lighting are invited – colour, vision, glare, daylight ….
