5 The dark adaptation curve, depicting the threshold levels of cones and rods. portion of the spectrum, although not visible, can also affect the eye. Ultraviolet (UV) wavelengths extend from 180 nm to 380 nm. Exposure to UV radiation can produce ocular tissue damage. Infrared (IR) wavelength occurs from 760 nm up to the microwave portion of the spectrum. IR, or thermal radiation, can also damage tissues in the eyes. Vision and illumination design 47 The rods and the cones have different sensitivity to wavelengths.

1 as a model for your system. Remove the modulating variables that you do not need; then add your own. Likewise remove boxes (subsystems) and independent and dependent variables that you don’t need. This means that the contents of all the small boxes in the system should be modified to fit the purpose of your study. However, the sequence of operator information processing, perception, decision-making, control, and stress remains the same. 6. Discussion. • Discuss why you selected the dependent variable(s).

S. We wanted to propose warning signs to put on the machines used underground in coal mines. Typically, warning signs have red text, so we brought a few prototypes, but we quickly found out that it was so dark in the mine that it was difficult to see red. Color coding does not work out in a low illumination environment. We decided to use black text on white background, to make the contrast as large as possible. 7 MEASUREMENT OF VISUAL ACUITY The most common way to measure visual acuity is by using a chart with letters of different sizes, a so-called Snellen chart.
