Interiors specialist Antolin has developed NightSight Assist based on a lighting system that can optimise the driver’s pupil diameter by inhibiting adverse effects caused by low light conditions and thus improving the user’s vision.
The system allows users to reduce glare from headlights or other bright flashes; better appreciate shapes in low visibility situations, such as detecting an animal trying to cross the road; improve road signal interpretation; and decrease distorted vision.
It was developed with the Institute of Applied Ophthalmology (IOBA) and the University of Valladolid (UVa).
While traffic is significantly reduced at night, more than half of fatality accidents occur during that time. To conduct the appropriate studies to help solve this problem, Antolin, the IOBA and the UVa built a unique simulator to clinically measure the impact of light on the user and how to mitigate visual impairment during night driving. The results obtained in the tests were very positive and allowed the majority of monitored users to exponentially improve their visual acuity and comfort in night driving situations.
The systems can be integrated in the best possible ergonomic location, the sunvisor, adding additional functionality to this product when folded, without restricting its adaptation to other interior products.
Additionally, the device settings are configurable, always seeking to offer the best experience adapted to personal conditions, such as age and ocular pathologies.
