Keywords Tunnel threshold zone, fixation point, tunnel luminance.


Determination of luminance at road tunnel threshold zone is critical for driver’s safety and economic standpoint. Lighting system shall be designed and controlled for the driver to identify the obstacle at tunnel threshold zone from the minimum stopping distance from the start point of threshold zone while driving at design speed or regulated speed. Farther the distance the driver can identify the obstacle at tunnel entrance the lower the luminance required for identifying the obstacle. This study as the basic study to determine the optimal luminance level at threshold zone is intended to conduct the real-car test with the subject using Eye Gaze and Head Pose Tracking System to investigate the driver’s visual characteristics (gaze and search) and analyze the result, thereby identifying the fixation point and searching pattern that have effect on driver’s visual adaptation.
