This Anti Glare Driving Panel is an add-on LED lamp panel which you attach above the driving seat to reduce the glare from on-coming car lights at night. The idea is that the soft light from the panel shrinks your pupils slightly and so reduces the amount of glaring light that flows into your eyes from oncoming traffic.
OK look, it’s German right, so it must work. And if you’ve ever driven in Europe you’ll have seen the gradient lighting system they use in tunnels to acclimatise your eyes before you emerge into the open again. Anyway it’s an interesting concept isn’t it? The device costs €229.00 and can be self installed with the Velcro straps in minutes (it says here).
The principle is simple: When darkness and low light conditions automatically extend the pupils to get more light into the eye. Strong against the light, however, requires a rapid reduction in the pupil…A gentle, barely perceptible interior lighting makes the eyes relax, because the pupils shrink slightly – the glare risk is reduced. The eye, however, retains the full functionality. Perception and reaction will be optimized.
