These models are equipped with a new auto mode which automatically selects the measurement speed best suited for the luminance of the object to be measured and thus enhances the work efficiency of users.
First, input the geometries of the four elements into the luminance computation model: target vehicle, roadway, sign and other vehicles, as listed in Table 1.

Via software controls, three slides were created of approximately equal photopic luminance (that is, 0.
Luminance maps from viewpoints of interest are the most effective way to address glare issues.
Each set of 4 LEDs was aged for 100 h, and their chromaticity and luminance monitored for the next 50 h of operation.
The NP50C1MF01 module features a 1,106mm x 622mm high resolution 1,365 x 768 pixel WXGA display, with an improved contrast ratio of 50:1 and peak luminance increased by 80% to 450 candelas per square metre.
The 3M HL High Luminance Light Fiber is a solid core, plastic light fiber that produces a continuous glow three to five times brighter than other fibers.
They are capable of high luminance intensity, identifiable to the human eye.
We wanted to understand how important wide-angle luminance - a combination of off-axis viewing and brightness - was to consumers, since this is something 3M technology enhances.
Featuring a DICOM calibrated luminance of 500 cd/mA throughout its entire lifetime, the new display system is perfect for diagnostic imaging.
