Exterior Lighting

Exterior lights may consist of headlamps (low and high beam), park lights, daytime running lights, fog lights, signal lights, side marker lights, cab lights, tail lights, brake lights, center mount brake lights, reverse lights, and hazard flasher lights.

The aim of the outdoor lighting is, by illuminating the area, to maintain or to improve visual performance of the persons conducting human activities.

Let's look at the four basic elements of lighting: direction, quality, lighting ratio, and control. Each of these elements contribute to the overall effect of our lighting and need to be considered when we design our lighting.
