Abstract

A computer simulation was used to examine the effect of sun image reflections from satinized and curved bright chrome surfaces on the visual performance of the driver. The simulation showed curved bright chrome to be at least as effective as standard, flat satin chrome in reducing glare. Visual performance measured by reduction in perceived contrast was simulated in a variety of viewing situations representing several levels of severity. A maximum allowable reduction of preceived contrast in a criterion viewing situation is suggested as the basis for a reflectance standard for automotive chrome trim.
