According to Michelson, light travels
at 186,355 miles per second in a vaccuum - pretty fast by any
standard. This is perhaps why the measurement of light, and
its component colours is often perceived as a problem.
However, this is not the case. Through
work in the traffic signal industry, human visual perception,
and imaging system assessment, ATC can offer advice, consultancy
and facilitate the measurement of light and colour to National
Standards, via a close relationship with British Standards Institute,
ATC can help you to understand the differences
between luminance, illuminance and other optical parameters
and make them work in your favour to assess your products. We
can also help you to choose the correct equipment to build your
own test facility.
ATC has worked with companies such as
Peek Traffic Ltd in the traffic light industry to design and
development equipment that has then been tested to National
Standards and then been fully credited with type approval to
be used on British roads.
