Be Seen Be Safe
The exhibition gives you the chance to try out the truck simulator and discover yourself how difficult it is to see what is happening on the road when it is dark.
Be Seen Be Safe consists of two exhibits showing how it may be difficult for pedestrians and cyclists to be seen in the traffic. Watching the exhibition, you will learn about vision, responsiveness, light and colours.
Place yourself in the driver’s seat in this simulator: Climb into a truck and discover for yourself how difficult it is to see what is happening along the roadside in dim light conditions, at dusk for example. The experience has been pushed to extremes, so it will not be easy.
In dim light conditions it is difficult to see. When light is available, it is crucial to distinguish the important items from the unimportant ones. This is achieved by using shiny surfaces – we call it high reflectance.
Bright colours and reflectors are crucial for being seen in the dark.
