One of the most important aspects of visual comfort and lighting quality is the restriction and elimination of glare. With the advancement of LED technology, glare has received renewed interest. But what makes it challenging to create a simple metric that accurately predicts the perception of glare? This webinar will cover the basics of glare, methods and research challenges when investigating glare and creating metrics, and the importance of research in this area. It will also cover work of the Discomfort Glare in Outdoor Nighttime Environments (DGONE) committee including the glare demonstration conducted during the 2019 IES Annual Conference.
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
